High Country Writers Retreat 2021
Time & Location
About the Retreat
The High Country Writers Retreat is designed for writers at any stage of their writing development, to experience a dedicated writing and authorial experience in the company of other writers and published authors. The Retreat offers a ‘boutique’ experience with each Retreater having a program designed to cater specifically to his or her stated Retreat goals.
Accommodation & Meals – Retreaters may select from a range of lovingly-renovated rooms or cottages on Waterloo Station, with quiet, climate-controlled quarters and ensuite facilities in most rooms. The Retreat will be fully catered and includes dinners in different Station locations for added variety.
Program facilitation and mentoring – writer, business advisor and mentor and Retreat Director, Virginia Eddy, will be on-hand to guide Retreaters through a defined but flexible program that offers tailor-made individual mentoring, small group and large group sessions.
Writing time - when, for how long and on what will be each Retreater’s choice. It is your retreat designed to achieve your goals.
Challenges – micro ideas and writing challenges will be on offer to stimulate minds and motivate conversation as well as writing action for one, two or the whole Retreat group.
Inspirational walks - Retreaters will be offered guided-walks daily to explore built and natural features across Waterloo Station, whether taken up to take a break from writing, to get the blood flowing or to find inspiration, each location offers stimulation for the senses, regardless of your genre and personal interests.
Connect - Writer-retreaters will reside and dine on Station with traditionally- and independently-published authors. Retreat packages include access to all moderated Q&A panel sessions on fiction, non-fiction and more at the concurrent High Country Writers Festival in nearby Glen Innes on Saturday 16th October, and at Waterloo Station on Sunday 17th October.
