Tutored Retreats.

Our retreats are held in places of outstanding natural beauty in France and the UK throughout the year. They include writing workshops and one to one sessions with a published novelist along with group feedback sessions. Afternoons are free to work on your writing projects in peaceful solitude or to enjoy outdoor activities in the surrounding area.

We offer shared or single accommodation, homemade meals, beverages and wine. Places are limited to eight participants and we do book up quickly. To reserve your place or to request more information contact marilyn@yourwritefulplace.com
