Imagine spending a glorious day in July writing in one of Tynemouth’s most historic buildings… Well, now you can!

I’m pleased to announce that Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade, after being so impressed with the work of Elementary Writers during their readings earlier this year, have opened up their inspirational Watch House Museum for a writing retreat, run by me!

The retreat will run from 10am until 2pm and will give writers the chance to explore the Watch House, learn more about this wonderful organisation and the work they do as well as taking in some incredible scenery. Around the Watch House, there are very interesting artefacts that could act as prompts for stories, poetry, scripts or non-fiction pieces. Even if you’ve got an idea already or something you’re already working on, this retreat is open to everyone. It gives writers the chance to be inspired and work in peace for four, uninterrupted hours.

In addition to this, you will also be given the opportunity to read your TVLB-inspired work aloud at the venue’s Heritage Open Day on Saturday, 10th September (although that’s not mandatory!).

The cost of the retreat is £40 and that fee includes lunch. Group booking discounts are available. In order to secure your place, a non-refundable deposit of £20 is due. To book your place on the retreat, call me on 07854 147140 or email me.
