Workshops & Writing Retreats in Spain

Awaken the Writer in You

A carefully blended fusion of guided writing, coaching and meditation, this workshop is delivered in collaboration with Mindfulness practitioner, Suzanne Lloyd from Red Berry Mindfulness. Learn how Mindfulness can enhance your writing practice and enable words and ideas to easily flow. 

“A really enjoyable day – I came away with loads of ideas, not only on
writing but about myself as a creative person. The combination of Mindfulness
practices and writing exercises was really powerful.”

Hilary Smith, educator, author and participant on Awaken the Writer in You

Rebecca uses a wide range of techniques not just to inspire you, but to draw out ideas, thoughts and ways of working that you didn’t know you could do. This boosted our confidence.

Her activities meant that not only can you make writing a priority but also you feel that you can do it.

Writing Retreats & Holidays in Spain

Set in the heart of the Andalucian mountain range and surrounded by three natural parks – Grazalema, Sierra de Las Nieves and Alcornocales – it’s hard not to be inspired by the location.

“Travelling. It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta

Retreats take place from Sunday to Friday throughout spring and autumn in a tiny, white mountain village in Andalusia, Spain. Longer stays are possible.

The landscape is stunning, with inspiring views from your accommodation, a salt water pool and easy access to walks, local food and wine. It’s perfect for taking time out in nature to focus on your project without being completely cut off.   

Writers generally bring their own project to focus on and find the environment a productive and inspirational place to work. We often take a morning walk to mull over thoughts and later, throw ideas around over lunch or dinner. During the day, take a dip in the salt water pool between paragraphs, dream creatively from a sunbed or practice yoga on the terrace.  In the evening, watch the sun set behind the mountain with a glass of a wine after a good day’s writing. Optional coaching sessions and day trips are also available.

Whether you’re starting off as a fiction writer (perhaps, like me, you’re transforming from a non-fiction to a creative writer) or, you’re writing non-fiction such as a personal memoir or for academic purposes, sharing the journey with others not only motivates you, but also provides accountability. You get to share ideas, receive feedback if you need it and work in a space where others understand the ups and downs of being a writer. Arriving with your mind focused on your project, enables you to make the most of the time and space.
