Exciting news!  We are collaborating with debut memoirist Stacey Heale.​ 

Join us for an exclusive day retreat in Oxfordshire 


FRIDAY 14th JUNE 2024


(If you'd like to go on the waiting list please email


WHAT TO EXPECT: A day full of exploring the messy nature of our lives through writing withinan intimate and safe environment. This is an amazing opportunity to reframe the hard moments in our lives, break through creative blocks and learn techniques to access the healing power of expressive writing. 


Difficult experiences can often elude language so Stacey will teach you how to tune into our bodies and intuition to unravel our truth and authentic voice to make meaning. Through guided exercises, Stacey will show you how to tap into your authentic voice and use the process of writing to understand your feelings in a non-competitive, safe community with no judgment. She will also talk you through her own experiences of writing about her own hard things, sharing personal examples never published before. 


Stacey will also provide tips on writing a book proposal, pitching ideas to magazines, finding the right agent

for you and how to approach publishers. This will be an empowering day which we hope will leave you feeling

energised and inspired, with tools to continue your writing practice in an openhearted way.​​
