Have you always loved writing but want to take it to the next level? This creative writing retreat for beginners will help you tune in - with mind, body and heart - to the source of your creative inspiration and practise some fundamental craft skills. You will get the space and support to create a new piece of work in the form of your choice - fiction, narrative non-fiction or poetry - or polish an existing small project (up to 1,000 words) .
Based in Invercargill, the Southland Arts Festival is a month-long celebration of the very best in arts and culture.
