Writers’ retreat weekend

Katy Lassetter, of Chichester Copywriter, is organising a Writers’ Retreat Weekend over August Bank Holiday for budding wordsmiths and all those interested in writing.

“Cobnor Activities Centre will provide the accommodation and facilities for the retreat and as Cobnor is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty writers will not only have the opportunity to take in the stunning surroundings and enjoy the fresh air but they’ll also get the chance to get stuck in to some outdoor activities,” Katy said.

“A powerboat trip, a coastal walk and an informal kayaking lesson are all on the cards for those writers that want to get out from behind their desks and get some inspiration from the great outdoors.

“The event will kick off with a drinks reception, informal networking, inspirational talks from professional writers and a book signing on Friday evening, designed to give local writers and publishers the opportunity to meet likeminded people. There will also be a Writing and Publishing Panel Talk: Getting Published: Our Experiences. This will be an enlightening discussion between local writers Gabrielle Kimm (His Last Duchess, Sphere, 2010 and The Courtesan’s Lover, Sphere, 2011) and Isabel Ashdown (Glasshopper, Myriad Editions, 2009 and Hurry Up and Wait, Myriad Editions, 2011) and their editors.”
