One Day Creative Writing Retreat for Women
In the beautiful and inspirational setting of Hospitalfield House Arbroath June 7th
11am - 6pm
This retreat is designed for women who write, or who want to write and would enjoy exploring approaches to creative writing in a relaxed setting.
You may be an experienced writer or a beginner. You may have an interest in creative writing but be unsure how to get started. You may already be involved in a creative field such as art, dance, music or theatre and wish to tap into another creative modality. You may feel cut off from your imagination and be interested in accessing your 'creative voice'.
Hospitalfield welcomes all women aged 18 and over to a relaxing one day retreat led by writer, musician and performance artist Pauline Meikleham focused on supporting and inspiring you to access and express your creativity through written and spoken word.
Hospitalfield is a unique location in North East Scotland , a centre for contemporary arts, housing one of Scotlands largest art collections in perpetuity, which includes paintings, prints and works on paper, sculpture, textiles, ceramics and furniture established in the 19th C by founder Patrick Allan Fraser and extended through continuing engagement with living artists through international collaborations and residency programmes. The house and grounds are beautiful and atmospheric and make an ideal base for writing and relaxation with many objects and areas of interest to stimulate the senses and the imagination.
The pace will be relaxed, the mood reflective as you develop your own response to the environment and activities , sharing as much or as little as you please with the group. You will have the opportunity to work with others and share your discoveries and there will also be time to work alone and for personal reflection. We hope to use the grounds for some of the activities, so please bring a water proof or brolly and suitable foot wear as grass may be wet, paths muddy.
Registration is from 10.30am. A selection of teas and coffee, water and snacks will be available throughout the day. A vegetarian lunch will be included.
Please bring a notebook and pen/pencil whatever you enjoy writing with. Other materials will be available for specific activities.
The workshop will run from 11am to 6pm with a break for lunch and short breaks throughout the day.
The total workshop cost is £55 including lunch and refreshments. A deposit of £25 should be paid in advance to secure your place and no later than Friday 5th June 1pm.
