Here is the perfect opportunity to remove yourself from your daily routine, spend a weekend in a serene location, and join lovers of language seeking to improve their writing.

You'll have time to work on your writing, go for a walk in the park just across the road, talk to your fellow participants about writing—or a bit of everything.

We’ll gather at mealtimes (included in the cost) and at four workshops:
→ Your opening scene — How to grab the reader's attention
→ Finding and developing great characters
→ Three-dimensional writing — using all your senses
→ Getting the dialogue right

Over the course of the weekend, we’ll schedule each participant for an individual session with one of the coaches. All critiquing is constructive and positive.

STARTS: 16 September at 5:00 pm
ENDS: 18 September at 5:00 pm
WHERE: Siddhartha Ontmoetingscentrum in Tremelo (Belgium) close to Leuven – a 45-minute drive from Brussels and an hour from Maastricht.
