Writers Retreat and Mini Cruise 

5th October to 7th October 2018

Depart Hull 5th October 5pm (last check in: 7pm) arrive back in Hull 7th October (final departure: 3pm)

All meals on board, all the writing workshops, the murder mystery experience, and transfers to Rotterdam or Amsterdam (whichever is your preference) are included in the price.
The only thing not included in the price is your lunch on Saturday in Rotterdam/Amsterdam, because it’s completely your choice where you’ll be eating it!

Spaces are LIMITED so book fast to avoid disappointment. And you MUST have a passport.
Prices start at £285 pp (based on two people sharing). 
Single room occupancy is available; the extra space can be a bonus when planning and writing.

During the weekend there will be a number of workshops that will give you help and advice on the following and more: creating memorable characters, engaging plot-lines, and maintaining motivation to actually finish your work! As well as these, there will be short, specific workshops, such as how to write sex scenes, writing short stories, making crime plots authentic, how to self-publish, advice on approaching agents, and how to combat writers’ block.

I’ll also hold one-to-one coaching and feedback sessions with all writers on board who feel they would benefit from such intervention and tailored advice.

So, If you’re feeling uninspired and need to rediscover your writing mojo, a trip to the continent may be just what you need to refresh your grey matter! New sights, a different culture, and a whole host of new writing friends. 

Full details of the workshop timetable will be available nearer the date. We can even tailor the smaller workshops to the needs of the writers who book on to this unique event.

Club Cabins available on request (Club cabins include a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, and more floor space, as well as a table and chair). Prices for those start at £470 (single occupancy) and £395 (double occupancy).

I’m open to holding workshops to groups of writers on any aspect of the writing, production, publishing or book marketing processes. If you have an idea of/theme for a workshop that you’d like me to deliver, drop me an email at info@thewritinghall.co.uk
