Eastbourne Write Club: September Writers’ Retreat

30th September 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1st October 2017 @ 6:00 pm


Join a weekend writing retreat on Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October, organised by writers for writers, at Eastbourne’s new Devonshire Collective DC3 Workshop Space.

This will be a dedicated writing space for you to bring whatever you want to work on and write in the company and quiet hum of other writers.

A stone’s throw from the beach, artisan ice cream on your doorstep and a super nice workshop space that’s been recently converted especially for Eastbourne’s new cultural quarter. What more could you ask for?

The plan for the day is simple:

  • 10am arrivals – bring your own tea/coffee/refreshments of choice
  • 10-10.30am – group decides on writing schedule for the day, house rules & housekeeping (brief discussion)
  • 10.30-4.30pm – write!
  • *lunch break planted somewhere in this time
  • 4.30-6pm – sharing work, networking, drinks (BYO)

Maximum space: 15 per day

Writers of all genres and level of experience are welcome.

The retreat will provide a dedicated quiet space, loosely structured (as explained above). The main rule is that we respect the shared need for quiet to work within, unless during agreed break times. And have fun, we hope.

You can book for just 1 day or book for both. We don’t mind! £10 per day

What do I bring

We suggest you bring everything you need to make your writing possible and comfortable, such as

  • pen, paper, notebook, laptop
  • cushion, scarf, blanket, jumper,
  • favorite tea, snacks, mug
  • talisman, desk ornaments
  • wine, chocolate, tequila
  • headphones
  • your own breakfast/lunch/dinner
  • anything else?

What else?

DC3 Workshop Space is a self-contained venue. The venue is fully accessible. There is strong wifi.

The DC cafe – Alexio’s at DC1 – does amazing lunches & coffees to take away (highly recommended). There’s a kitchen with use of kettle, fridge, cups, cutlery and other necessities.

You will probably sharing a table with 1 other. Five heaters if you get cold easily.
