Picture this:

After an invigorating walk along the beach, you settle into a comfy armchair in the sitting room of the clifftop Windrush house, which offers a stunning 270 degree view of the Pacific. After a writing workshop with acclaimed author Melanie Crowder, and a scrumptious lunch, you cross the property to the studio for an inspiring talk by NYT bestseller, Ingrid Law. Later that evening, after an afternoon of dedicated writing time and more delicious food, it’s back down to the beach for a celebratory bonfire!

Come to learn and be inspired. Leave refreshed and motivated. We can’t wait to see you there!



hosted by acclaimed author Melanie Crowder
