Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre’s fully catered retreats will provide you with the time and space to write, read and relax. Set in a peaceful location in the stunning surroundings of northwest Wales, you can take inspiration from the spectacular sea views over Cardigan Bay, share ideas over dinner or simply sit back and relax in Tŷ Newydd’s cosy library.

Award winning author and poet, Helen Mort will be your resident tutor during this fully catered summer retreat. During the week, Helen will be running group workshops and optional one to one 30-minute tutorials. Participants will be invited to send a sample of creative writing in advance.

This retreat is designed for both emerging and established writers of any genre who are looking to dedicate focused time on their writing within a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

On our retreats, everyone will have a room of their own, and your home-cooked meals will be prepared for you by our experienced resident chef. We offer a range of rooms at a variety or prices and accessibility. Please enquire for further information about individual rooms before booking. Guests will be invited to arrive after lunch on the Monday and depart soon after breakfast on the Friday.
