Have you got a writing project you want to do but don't know where to start? Have you got started but want to make it better? Or maybe you've always wanted to give writing a go but need a bit of help. This one-day retreat is designed to give you space to work on a writing project, as well as provide you with some technical skills to help deliver your writing to an audience. You can bring an existing writing project, an idea, or even just turn up with an open mind and willingness to learn. All that's really required is a desire to write!

The retreat will be led by house director, Eddie O'Connor, who completed a Masters of Writing in 2020. Eddie spends much of his spare time writing sermons, essays, screenplays, and novels. He is currently working on an adaptation of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius that aims to reinterpret the text to a more general audience.
