Lots of techniques to get ideas flowing, and I ended up with a number of story ideas. It's a really enjoyable course and I thoroughly recommend it, particularly to anyone who feels like they're in a bit of a rut or between projects.

7 days course, rolling access

Join our kickass community

Designed to fit around every day life and a busy schedule wherever you are in the world, we’ll give you techniques and exercises for generating ideas and turning them into usable outlines for brilliant stories.

Great ideas are the bedrock of storytelling and writing.

Sometimes they come thick and fast, and sometimes they seem to languish in the dank cellar of your subconscious and refuse to come out to play.

All those ideas are in there though, hiding in your brain, just waiting for the spark that sets them free.

In this fun and fast-paced seven day course, we’ll work with you through ways to feed your brain, germinate those idea-seeds (seedy ideas?) and keep stories tumbling out of your head.

Give your writing and writing habit a vigorous shakedown. Ooer.

Finish the course with a regular, sustainable writing practice.

Join our lovely little online community to support you through starting, middling, finishing and beyond.

LOVE FOR WRITERS’ HQ

Never done anything like this before and found the online format worked so well. Felt relaxed, and that contributed to creativity. Many thanks – will sign up for the next one next week!

Completed a first draft in 25 days! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
For anyone still unsure as to whether the online writing retreats are worth your time, I say this: I hadn’t written anything significant in months and signed up for one retreat. In those six hours I planned and entire children’s fiction trilogy I’d been mulling over. Then the lockdown happened so I signed up for all the weekend retreats and I completed the first draft of the first book in 25 days! The motivation these retreats provide is an undeniable gift. Thank you Sarah and Jo and all the other retreat hosts, I am eternally grateful. ❤️💛💚💙💜

These online writers’ retreats are invaluable!
I don’t think I could be motivated to write without them. Most productive Sunday in a long time. I wrote 1300 words! Thanks Writers’ HQ.
