POWES Writing Retreat 19-21 March 2018 The retreat will take place in Rydal Hall, the 17th-century mansion which is a former home of the poet William Wordsworth. It contains several lounges, a library and plenty of additional spaces for writing individually or collectively. Rydal hall has a bar, a teashop with internal and external seating, a 34 acre estate which features formal Edwardian gardens, woodlands, ponds and a waterfall and is surrounded by the beautiful Cumbrian countryside. The retreat is run on a not-for-profit basis and the fee includes dinner on Monday 19 March, all meals on the 20 March and breakfast and lunch on the 21 March, plus accommodation. Also included in the price are additional refreshments, informal writing workshops and morning yoga sessions (allocated on a first come first served basis). In order to keep the event small, inclusive and productive we have limited the number of places available, so early booking is advisable.
