This course is rooted in the belief that cultivating creativity and personal resilience is a fundamental part of building a more socially and ecologically friendly future. We are living in a time of immense upheaval, where it is becoming harder and harder to nurture our sense of wellbeing and connection.

Developing tools to help us build a practice of grounding and joyful creativity is essential both for personal and community resilience.

Course participants will explore and develop a creative writing practice through a series of workshops designed to provide a ‘resilient writing toolkit’. This toolkit will be taught and practiced over the weekend, with the view that it can be taken and used as a resource for continuing your creative practice in the future.

This isn’t your average writing retreat! We want to give you a set of skills that will accompany and support you throughout your life, enabling you to connect to the land around you and foster a sense of belonging.

No prior writing experience is needed to participate – seasoned writers and total beginners are all welcome.

The Writing for Resilience workshops will include:

– Writing practices inspired by the surrounding mountains and ancient woodlands
– Independent creative writing practices
– Collaborative writing practices
– Group sharing, reflection and feedback sessions
– Mindfulness and creativity in nature workshops led in and around the Nantmor valley

And more! (Plus food from some incredible local chefs)
