As we hunker down for those shorter days and long dark winter nights we’re more likely to feel down as SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) saps our energy and make us feel sluggish. But research tells us that writing expressively is therapeutic, relaxing and good for us, the perfect antidote to Winter Solstice Blues.
Together we’ll explore routes to creative writing with music, location, colours, language, essential oils and the seasons. Whether you’ve never written anything but a shopping list before, or whether you’ve been a secret scribbler for years, escape to Denman and treat yourself to some time out and experience the gentle joys of creative expressive writing.
Begin a journal, a story or a memoir, become a diarist or explore your poetic self. Reconnect with your creativity and enjoy writing with a small supportive group of like-minded people; nurture your writerly talents and see how they blossom.
This course is relaxed and friendly, men and women are equally welcome, and it’s suitable for all ages and abilities, including those with no experience of writing.
Price includes a comfortable ensuite room with tea/coffee making facilities and varied menus offering a selection of delicious meals, including buffet style cooked breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, tea in the afternoon, and a waiter service three course evening dinner with coffee/tea.
