Description

From Friday night 22nd November to Sunday 24th lunchtime, Amanda Viviers is running a retreat for writers. There will be moments of great connection with Dinner, lunch and breakfast with fellow writers and then moments of silence as we write together. The first retreat in February was so well received.

Here is feedback from one writer;

Klara Donovan- Blogger and writing her first novel.

“I just wanted to thank you with all my heart for arranging that retreat last week. It was so magical, and wonderful, and inspiring, and uplifting. All the good things! You were right, it was a great group of ladies that came and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to connect with each of them, and you too!”

The goal: to get your book manuscript, blogs or writing done!

The New Norcia Guest House is one of my favourite places to write.

All meals for residential guests are provided in the Guesthouse Dining Room. The meals offered are simple and home cooked, visitors receive the same as the monks. They are self-serve in style and are offered in one sitting at the same time as the monks. Lunch is the main meal of the day (three courses) with supper being a lighter meal in the evening.

Please let Amanda know if you have any food ALLERGIES, unfortunately, food preferences will be hard to cater for, but you are able to bring your own food if you are needing a very specific diet. Every meal includes vegetables and salads.

There are eight twin-share rooms with en-suites and six single rooms and one twin room with shared facilities. Every retreater will get a room by themselves. First in- best dressed, will get the rooms with their own en suite.

All linen and towels are provided.
