In need of some help with your writing? Would you like to take some time out to rest, think and chat with likeminded people about how to write a novel?  I am collaborating with Ease Retreats on one of their many Writing & Wellness retreats in 2023. It will be a wonderful long weekend of rest, relaxation with open, honest and, I hope, inspiring conversation so you leave motivated and full of ideas for your own writing.

What: A long weekend with me Clare Mackintosh, where I'll be speaking honestly about my experiences as a writer, and you'll get the chance to share your writing hopes, dreams, stories, and experiences in a safe environment. I shall guide you through each day with writing masterclasses with time for a Q&A.  We will also be able to talk as a group or 121 by the fire, after dinner, at the beach and take things a little slower in beautiful surroundings 


When: Thursday 9th February to Sunday 12th February 2023. 

Where: We shall be retreating in a big beach house in Criccierth North Wales, located only a few steps away from the beach - sea dip anyone?! The perfect place where we can take coastal walks, treat ourselves to wellbeing massages and just hunker down around the log burner if we can't be bothered to move. (Or the weather won't let us!) 


As well as plenty of writing chat, there'll be:

• A 2 hour writing masterclass on the Friday about How to structure a novel.  Using the three-act structure as a framework, in this hands-on session Clare will equip you with the tools to shape your story into a potential page-turner.


A 2 hour writing masterclass on the Saturday about Creating Character. Whether your characters take centre stage or only have a few lines, make them leap off the page with this session on creating character.

• Feasting on delicious local produce around the banquet table

• Watching the stars from the outside seating, on the beach or, if you prefer, you can get all cosy with a film in the cosy lounge. 


• Mind-mapping and journaling through the process of morning pages.

• Plus, there will be time to rest, read and relax, as well as the opportunity to curl up in front of the fire with a book or magazine.
