If you’re already looking forward to a bit of Spring warmth and sunshine, John Simmons has just the writing course for you. April might feel far off, but spaces are sure to fill up quickly.
At this time of year, I obsessively
look out for those signs of seasonal change: extra minutes of daylight, buds on
some plants, first snowdrops. Here’s another welcome sign of spring – a new
kind of Dark Angels course, open to all our angels (but sign up quick as
numbers will be restricted).
Timing: afternoon 20 April till
afternoon 23 April
I’ve always been interested in visual
art, and increasingly in its links with writing. So for this workshop retreat I’m
teaming up with artist Jenni Wallace for exercises and creative activities
(visual and verbal) that we’re devising specially.
Located at Tilton House, the former
country home of John Maynard Keynes, this is the only Bloomsbury house where
you can stay overnight. Close by is Charleston, the house where Vanessa Bell
painted in the company of her sister Virginia Woolf and other members of the
Bloomsbury set. We’ll visit the house, which is itself an inspiration for writers
and artists, and we’ll go for walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
And enjoy springtime.
This is a unique combination of
retreat and workshop, designed to refresh your creativity, provide space for
relaxation and stimulate your senses. The food will be delicious home-cooked
vegetarian meals and, yes, there will be wine.
Places will be limited so we advise
early booking. The accommodation is comfortable, and there are options to
choose a room of your own, to share or to have a non-residential place if you
Prices per person
Shared room: £695
Exclusive room: £850
includes breakfast, lunch and dinner
For anyone living nearby and wanting
to join on a daily basis, the fee will be £475.
We look forward to hearing from you.
It will be a Dark Angels course like and unlike any other. Email Susanne to book your place.
