Dedicate the Day is a writing retreat for busy people. Gone are the days of booking trains to far-off places or sharing rooms with strangers! This little retreat is designed to fit around you and your lifestyle.

Set in the peaceful surroundings of Windmill City Farm, this experience will give you the space, encouragement, and inspiration you need to set your words free.

The retreat offers prompts and provocations which will either get you started on new writing or support you in developing your work in progress. You’ll also have time to write, plus space to share and discuss your work.

During this event, you will be:

– Offered prompts to get your creative juices flowing

– Supported in developing your work

– Given space to write

– Invited to share your work with others (if you want to!)

– Get to meet like-minded people

Want to make the most of the day? Begin early or finish later with an optional tasty snack and cuppa at the Windmill City Farm cafe.
