Weekend Writers' Retreat

Calling all urban writers. Imagine this: a residential writing retreat in London that maximises your writing time and minimises time away from your real life 

Imagine 48 hours of writing bliss

Leave distraction, duty and domestic chores behind for the weekend, pursue your creative passion without leaving the M25 or washing up a single plate or workshopping your project.

This is your retreat. Write all day - or not. Read, snooze, think, reflect, pause. 


Does this sound good to you? 

Lots of this:

cocktails and canapés on arrival // good food and wine all weekend //  inspiring conversations with great people, event greater betters  //  private bedrooms, fluffy towels, strong showers  //  private and communal space for writing, napping, dreaming and reading. 

None of this:

long train or car journeys to get there  //  so-called motivating public word count tracking or reading your work aloud or workshopping  //  naff mattresses and poor water pressure, scratchy towels or shared bedrooms  //  communal food prep, cheap ingredients and washing-up afterwards  //  a small workspace. 


Get all the details here. 

I just spent the most productive 48 hours of my year at Clare Barry’s retreat. I was looked after so well that I was able to get lost in the zone and finish the first draft of my new novel. Time and money well spent. I will be back!
