Planning Your Memoir Retreat

June 17 - June 21

Planning your Memoir, our first retreat of 2024!
Join us in June for a 5-night, 4-day creative writing retreat like no other! Dive into the art of memoir writing at Palm Court, where your story comes to life. Whether you’re a seasoned writer or just starting out, this retreat with author, journalist and broadcaster John Walsh is designed to ignite your creative spark.
🌿 Imagine mornings filled with inspiring workshops, delicious breakfast, and stunning coastal paths waiting for your exploration. Led by John, we’ll unravel the secrets of memoir writing – finding your theme, structuring your story, and capturing those authentic moments.
🌊Afternoons are yours to indulge in writing, seaside strolls, or a relaxing hot tub session. The day concludes with afternoon tea, homemade cakes, and supper, providing the perfect setting to unwind and share your progress with your fellow writers.
✨ Whether it’s a personal memoir, a family history, or life lessons collection, this retreat will help you discover and enhance your unique voice. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to connect and create.
