& bestselling author Emma Gannon

Saturday 16th to Monday 18th November 2024
























Where: Spend a wonderful weekend at a stunning venue in the Brecon Beacons in the Welsh countryside:

think green valleys, hidden lakes and ancient woodlands. Comfortable, relaxing and inspiring — this will be a

weekend of learning, connecting and reflecting with a group of like-minded creative individuals. 


What to expect: This is a weekend full of learning and resting. You will come away feeling nourished inside and out.

You will receive a masterclass of creativity, connection and reflection. In Emma’s special “Creative Unblocking Workshop” you will learn tools to help you turn ideas into tangible creative projects. Part masterclass, part group coaching session — this day will be your chance to ask Emma anything, plus learn everything she has

to share on living a creative life. You will also have plenty of opportunities to rest and relax.

Hot tub, cinema room, fire pit chats, cosy corners, lots of space for reflection and journaling and walks. 

You’ll also get to experience an exclusive recording of a new project of Emma’s

(yet to be announced publicly), goody bags, brilliant group activities, and even receive a hand-picked book from

Emma in your room, plus enjoy many writing exercises and prompts you can take home with you.
