The Centre for Stories is pleased to announce that we will have an in-house writing retreat for 2019. Over the course of five days, you will be able to use our facilities and write during the day with like-minded people. This will help create a sense of community, give you the time you need, and provide the right conditions in which to produce your best work. We will provide lunch and a collegiate atmosphere, and, our staff will be on hand to help out with specific questions. Our facilities include a fully functioning kitchen, free tea & coffee, onsite printing, use of meeting room (with prior booking), car parking nearby, and easily accessible public transport. You will also have the opportunity to attend Write Night and Literary Mixers for free. 

All you need to do is show up from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday beginning on July 8th until July 12th.
