Writing Retreat 2022

On the 1 April 2022, 14 pupils from the Diocesan School for Girls and St Andrew’s College departed for a writing retreat at the Glen Boyd game farm. Over the course of two days, pupils could choose to attend workshops such as:

  • Tasting Ingredients:  focus on the power and beauty of structure and sound
  • Killing it Early: The process of writing and working early in the morning
  • Micro-Fiction-Machines
  • The Soul Seeker’s Guide to Poetry 101
  • Setting Seekers: The landscape within us

There were also fireside readings every night and time to read and write independently.

My sincere thanks to Ms Gowar and Mr Stuart-Watson for all they did to make this retreat a success. I believe that what they offered in their workshops was excellent and extended all involved in many different and exciting ways. My thanks also extend to all the pupils involved: it was a privilege to have heard all of your voices come through in your writing. Keep on writing!
