A four night boutique writing retreat for mothers in the peaceful Weald of Kent countryside:

27 - 31 January 2020
Only 1 place (or 2 shared room places) now available

A life-changing three days.” Clover Stroud

A tranquil and inspiring retreat; a place to make progress on your writing project, meet that deadline, crack that difficult rewrite and recharge your creative batteries with a small group of writers who happen to be women.

Hosted by me, Rebecca Schiller (author, journalist and founder of the human rights in childbirth charity Birthrights), the Women Who Write Retreat promises:

  • peace, quiet and a lie-in (if you want one)

  • a chance to be nurtured, cooked for and listened to - you won’t have to lift a finger!

  • a break from your day job and/or caring responsibilities

  • structured writing sessions and goal-setting

  • peer support and feedback from other writers

  • frank discussion of the opportunities and difficulties that combining writing with our wider lives can bring

  • a host with expertise in women’s right, mental health and equality

  • who also knows a thing or two about nurturing women (given my previous career as a doula)

  • luxurious accommodation and glorious gardens

  • walks, wine/tea drinking (BYO), fireside chats

  • set in the heart of the English countryside - only an hour (door-to-door) from London St Pancras station

  • all meals, cakes, fruit, hot and soft drinks provided

  • your own large double with ensuite, smaller double/twin or shared twin room


  • Arrive after 3pm on 27 January

  • Depart by 10.00am on 31 January

  • Location: the house is located just outside the village of Woodchurch, Kent, TN26
