The novel writing retreat is a retreat property located in Taroona, Tasmania (just south of Hobart). Each retreat runs for 9 days/8 nights and accommodation (in your own room) and food are included in each retreat.
Writers arrive at the retreat property on Saturday for a flexible weekend of settling in and getting to know everyone; followed by a productive week of writing – supported by lessons, consultations and discussion; finished off with a flexible weekend.
Writers arrive throughout the day on Saturday to settle in and get to know one another, as well as the retreat facilitator and the published novelist attached to that particular retreat, and to make use of the resources at the retreat, socialise, explore the local area and relax.
Sunday involves a few sessions which are fun and get everyone into the practice of working with and discussing novel writing concepts.
The rest of the day is free time to work on your novel-in-progress, make use of the resources at the retreat, socialise, explore the local area and relax.
