Wentworth Writing Weekend – Successful, Excellent & Fun Weekend

On the 26th, 27th, 28th May 2017 friends old and new came together for an inspirational writing weekend retreat for writers and poets of any level and experience in the most beautiful surroundings of Wentworth Castle. The workshops were tip top as usual with Marvin Close, Script Writer & Author leading one on Saturday about Planning to Write with suggestions and tips and Leonora Rustamova, Author, Editor & Literary Agent leading one on Sunday about Inspiration & Getting a Story Started leading to writing a Ketjak. A Ketjak is written in series of expanding paragraphs where the sentences of one paragraph are repeated in order in subsequent paragraphs with additional information being added to the subject matter as each paragraph expands.

In between our workshops there was eating, drinking and socialising and even time to write our own material either in the Long Barn, the fabulous library or even the beautiful rolling ground all at an affordable. To register for 2018 visit here:

I wrote another 5,000 words of my own book.
