Our Autumn Retreat 2018 was a few weeks ago and i have asked participants to look back on it and let us know what they thought about it. Here's what a couple of them said.
"It was an amazing and tranquilizing experience to be able to work in such a beautiful and silent village with such a beautiful group artists. The working sessions were very productive with the pomodoro method. I was able to go hiking with the bells of cows as a background music in the coffee breaks. Meals were delicious, hotel was cosy and the staff was friendly. Hope to be joining next year too. Perfect place to wash out all the gibberish in one's brain and concentrate on work and relax at the same time :)"
"A small hotel in the alps was the perfect place to kickstart work on my second novel. I prefer to work in solitude, so it was perfect to have a desk with this inspiring view--glad the weather didn’t stay nice the whole weekend or it would’ve been difficult to stay indoors. Getting together for informal meals was great to break up the working day and chat about writing."
It sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Why don't you plan on joining us at the next retreat?
Next year's dates will be announced here on the blog as well as in our regional newsletter.
In the meantime, here are some photos of our hard-working writers and illustrators who were at this year's retreat.
