Writers’ Escape to the Country


Where will the path lead you..?

Why not join us for our next planned escape to the country?

Taking place between 24th and 26th May 2017, you can indulge the writer in you and let yourself be inspired by the sumptuous surroundings of a charming country house hotel and relax in the stimulating company of other fellow escapees.  More importantly you will be able to write and discuss your work to your heart’s content.

We want your writing escape to be as sociable as you wish so you can choose to spend the full two days immersed in your work, wandering through the picturesque gardens, taking a trip into the nearby market town of Beverley or even visiting the City of Culture 2017 – anything that takes your fancy or sparks your imagination.

Better still, if you feel like being more social you can take part in the creative discussions on offer.  Facilitated by your Writers’ Escapes hosts – Ellie and Detty, these semi-structured sessions are designed to be informative and interactive, stimulating discussions to help you understand some of the key elements needed to ensure your creative writing is the best it can be.  Topics covered include – points of view, characterisation and structure, all done in an imaginative way of course, after all we are writers!  Please note that these are not formally tutored sessions but are designed to offer you an introduction to the mechanics of writing, allowing for plenty of discussion among the group, where we can often learn a lot from each other.

It’s all up to you.  You can participate in the sessions as little or as often as you wish – the emphasis of your personal escape is on you being able to do what you truly want to …. WRITE!

So why not get in touch to find out more or even book your place.

Go on … you know you want to!
