A writing weekend is a wonderful way to ensure that you give yourself the time and space needed to focus on your writing and to submerge yourself in its world.

Our weekend creative writing workshops in South Wales are fun, inspirational, and motivational. Workshops begin on a Saturday morning at 10am with a traditional Welsh welcome of welsh cakes and tea or coffee, and finish at 3pm on Sunday. Light lunches are provided, and accommodation can be arranged in local B&Bs in the beautiful market town of Cowbridge.
