Taunton Writing Retreat
One day, urban writing retreats for busy people who yearn to write.
Imagine an entire day without any distractions. Just you and your laptop. No dogs to walk. No kids to feed. And no household chores nagging at you. Nothing to do except write.
Taunton Writing Retreat helps you:
- Get inspired
- Stay motivated
- Set and achieve your goals
We’d all like to retreat to sun drenched Tuscany, hire a villa overlooking the ocean and spend a week deliberating over our next masterpiece. But reality bites. It’s tough enough to grab an hour, never mind a whole week.
Taunton Writing Retreat gives you six delicious, peaceful hours to get writing at a convenient, central location. You can also meet other scribblers and swap tips over a delicious lunch provided by The Scrumper Deli and Canteen.
Does this sound like you?
- On a budget that won’t stretch to a Caribbean, writer’s getaway
- Struggling to finish that stalled writing project
- Raring to go on your latest big idea
- Are you the world’s best procrastinator?
- Do you watch TV or sponge clean your house plants instead of writing?
Then Taunton Writing Retreat is the perfect solution. Book your place today and declare war on procrastination.
What’s it all about?
It’s all about taking that blank page and filling it, one word at a time. Once you’ve booked your place at the retreat, simply turn up with pen and paper or laptop in hand. After a short introduction, it’s time to find yourself a spot, sit down and write. And that’s it. But with no household chores calling your name, no phone calls or the lure of TV and games, you’ll be surprised how much you can achieve.
Achieving your goals
You will receive a planning sheet, emailed to you in advance. This means you can set realistic goals to get the most out of your one-day retreat.
We also provide some reference books, character sheets and writing prompts on the day, if you need some inspiration to get you going. And crucially, we also provide cake and coffee or tea –every writer’s best friends.
Any genre, any language – we don’t judge. We don’t mark. And we don’t give prizes. We just write. Kick start your writing project today at a Taunton Writing Retreat.
