Hopwas Writers

  • Are you a writer?
  • Do you want to be one?
  • Have you ever fancied having a go at poetry, short stories or even a novel?
  • Do you find it hard to set aside time?


Hopwas Writers is run by Lorraine Blencoe LL.B LL.M PGCE MA(Writing).

Each month from August 2013 we will run a retreat day each week. From 10 until 2 ish, on various days,  in Hopwas, an accessible and inspirational place, and on the main 765 and 785 bus route between Tamworth and Lichfield.
There is the possibility of some writing workshops, with tuition, running at different times.
There will be no internet, no phones, no TV and no children. All the comfort of your own home but none of the distractions.

There will be nothing but time, comfortable space and permission to write. Oh, and cakes, biccies, tea and coffee, of course. And probably homemade soup for lunch in the winter.
You will be amazed what you can achieve given the opportunity.

The ethos for each day will be getting it written rather than getting it right, in focused bursts.

Whether you want to continue an on-going project or start something new, maybe by giving yourself just one day each month.

Gift vouchers available – book a retreat day for the writer in your life.

The cost will be £20, payable on the day but booking essential. Book two days for just £30. Lunch and refreshments all included.

Your writing can’t afford for you not to do it!

Just bring your pen and paper or laptop, and imagination.

Tuesday 8th April 10 till 2.30 ish

Thursday 17th April 10 till 2.30 ish

Wednesday 30th 10 till 2.30 ish
