One Day Writing Retreats in London.

 

You want to write. Really you do.

If you could run away to Rome and write with the Italian sunlight streaming through your open balcony doors you’d be in heaven.

 

But there are bills to pay, things to clean, people to see and that dinner won’t make itself, will it?

 

There might be a small voice at the back of your head suggesting that you’re procrastinating, making excuses.

 

That voice is probably right. 

 

We all need some help. A place where it’s impossible to do anything but write, where you walk away at the end of a day tired but elated.

 

Luckily, I know just such a place…

Rocket fuel for your writing

You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve in just a few hours.

No distractions

No classes. No workshops. No TV. No internet.

Just time and space, a whole day dedicated to your work (10:00-17:30).

Work alongside a supportive small group (10-20 writers)

Because writers are nice people.

Where are the London retreats?

In a co-working space near to Shoreditch High St, Liverpool St and Old St stations.

It it wheelchair-accessible?

I’m really sorry, but no. If you have suggestions for accessible venues, please let me know at hello@urbanwritersretreat.co.uk.

How does it work?

Once your payment is completed through PayPal, your booking is confirmed. I’ll send out a goal-setting sheet and directions a few days before the retreat.

When you arrive we’ll have a brief introduction in the morning, then everybody sits down to work on their own projects.

The venue has desks, chairs, a kitchen to make tea/coffee and plenty of power points. I’ll provide a selection of writing books, lunch and snacks.

All you need to bring is your laptop/notebooks and your writing project.

 

What if I run out of words?

That’s a common concern, but honestly, there’s only so long you can stare at a page with nothing else to do. Normally though, getting started and settling down to focus is the hardest thing.

People are surprised at how things start to flow once they put their mind to writing, but there’s a selection of writing books including ones with creative prompt exercises if you need a boost.

Eek! It sounds scary!

Um. Yeah. I know what you mean.

As a fellow writer and a definite scaredy-cat when it comes to groups of new people, I know that I’d be longing to go on a writing retreat but never quite brave enough to push the button.

I promise we’re not that bad though! Pretty much everyone who comes to the retreats is lovely, and we won’t be offended if you don’t want to socialise in breaks (though you’ll have more fun if you do).

Go on. You won’t regret it.

Can I change dates?

You can change dates (subject to availability) or get a full refund up to two weeks ahead of your booked retreat date.

I’m very sorry, but I can’t give refunds or allow date changes after this point unless I’m able to find a replacement for your space.

Alternatively, you’re welcome to give/sell your space to another writer – just let me know who’s coming in your place.

Keep in touch and find out about new retreat dates

You’ll also get a toolkit to help you focus and develop great writing habits, along with motivation tips and useful things for writers every couple of weeks.

That sounds nice!
