Creative Writing Retreat

Creative Writing Retreat, 7th - 14th Sept 2019

The Course

As part of a small group, your time will be divided between 1-2-1 individual writing tutorials from Melvin and Lucy each day, as well as several optional group writing workshops.

This will be a specialist, intense and hugely enjoyable course, absolutely tailored to the group’s needs. Also included are evening lectures, fieldwork, inspiring excursions and as much horse riding and yoga as you wish.

Come prepared to experiment, begin new work or continue existing work, and be inspired by this wonderful place and by these amazing teachers.

Unlike most writing courses, Rancho Las Cascadas offers a luxury experience and this retreat includes absolutely everything! You just need to focus on YOU and YOUR writing and what you need for that, we’ll take care of the rest!
