La Tuilerie is very proud to announce a partnership with  N Quentin Woolf in providing writers' retreats. Due to the popularity of these retreats in previous years, and earlier in 2015, we are hosting two consecutive autumn retreats in the inspiring surroundings of the south of France on the following dates: 26th October - 1st November & 3rd - 9th November 2015.

This seven-day writing retreat is designed to provide time and space for you to develop your writing, be it a novel, a full-length non-fiction piece, or a portfolio of shorter writing. Whether you are starting out on a new project, reshaping or progressing with an existing one, or returning to a piece, this is an opportunity for you to escape distraction and focus on your craft, in an environment designed to support you in your writing.

Enjoy the comfort of this welcoming location, and spend days writing at the fireside, or looking out on French countryside. There will be the opportunity to workshop pieces of writing throughout the week, both in a group format, led by an experienced feedback facilitator, and in one-to-one consultations, tailored to your requirements. You’ll be able to step back from your work and get an overview.
