Relax & Write Weekend at Lilleshall November 2018

Many people say that they wish they had more time to write, and often what they mean is they wish they had longer periods of time in which to write. While ten minutes here, and fifteen minutes there is useful, it’s not long enough to become absorbed in what you’re writing and make a big impact upon what you’re trying to achieve.

It’s one of the reasons I help facilitate weekend workshops. A weekend away can be a great opportunity to hone your writing skills, get some further ideas and feedback on your writing, without being interrupted by all those distractions you get at home.

Some people use a weekend course as a means of motivation. For example, the sale of one or two articles might cover the cost of the weekend, so there’s an incentive to get at least two pieces published.

Alternatively, perhaps you’ve got a bigger project on the go and what it finished by a set date? Why not book yourself a writing weekend, make that your deadline for getting the big project complete, and use it as your reward for doing so?

In 2019 I’m facilitating at three weekend writing courses: one in Wales and two in Cirencester, in the Cotswolds.

They are:

15th to 17th February 2019

Destination … Publication: Travel/Article writing: Fishguard Pembrokeshire

12th to 14th April 2019

Writing the Landscape – Cirencester

6th to 8th September 2019

Writing Articles for Magazines – Cirencester

Perhaps I might see you on one of them?

Anyway, I hope 2018 has been a good writing year for you, and you’re all fired up for 2019. Many thanks for following my blog this year. I hope you find the accompanying column in Writing Magazinejust as information.

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

    I haven’t tried a weekend away yet, but it’s on my radar, I’ve definitely enjoyed workshop days, I’m guessing a whole weekend takes things to a different level.
    Going to check out your links now.

      Yes, Maria, a weekend gives your more time to explore things in more depth.

    A weekend of writing is very different from a workshop lasting just a few hours – but both have their advantages.

      Yes, there are pros and cons to both, aren’t there, Patsy? Day workshops work better for those who don’t have the time for a whole weekend.
