Writers Retreat

Tribe Porty, The Works
19/20 Windsor Place
Edinburgh Writers’ Retreat
Sunday 9th June
Time to stop faffing about and start writing. Spend the day in a room with a bunch of writers, limitless caffeine and no internet. We’ll help you set your personal writing goal for the day and longer term. A scoreboard, gold stars, general silliness and supportive competitiveness will help you reach your targets and break you out of your bad habits.
General WHQ Bio/Info:

At Writers’ HQ we know all too well how hard it is to carve out time to write around work, family and other responsibilities while trying to keep the evil imposter syndrome at bay. The solution? Writers’ HQ one-day retreats! Our writing retreats run monthly across the UK in 14 locations (Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Buxton, Cambridge, Cheltenham, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Portsmouth and Worthing), providing procrastinating writers with much-needed time, space, and encouragement to write, as well as a never-ending supply of tea and biscuits.
