About the Retreat

We will host fun and engaging workshops to inspire you to overcome whatever block you have and get you started on the thing that you’ve been meaning to write, be it a short story, a play, a script, or a poem. It will be personal, emotional, and lots of fun. You will end up writing stuff that you didn’t think you remembered. Anyone is welcome. You don’t have to be an experienced writer to join, but you will definitely leave with lots of creative ideas and materials in your notebook.


Are we going to do anything else other than writing?  Of course. There will be tree hugging, forest bathing, night-time campfire chats, early morning yoga, and whatever other wonderful activities The Barracks feel like offering  

What shall I bring? 

A big notebook and lots of pens.


Included with the full programm is accommodation, all food and drink!


Time to Write

When we are not in workshops, writing time is 9am - 6pm.

No distractions, plenty of inspiration, in the company of other writers

Doctor Teaching on Seminar


On both days, there will be a creative writing workshop, hosted by Secil to fuel your mind, followed by reading time, in the library, the reading room, in a hammock, wherever you feel comfortable



Recharge in the beauty and, tranquil peace of the Barracks. No background noise, no busy streets, no distractions other than nature, catered fresh food from the potager outside your window
