Previous Lapidus/NAWE Ty Newydd Retreats
The annual Lapidus /NAWE retreat was at Ty Newydd from Monday 6th April (4pm) to Saturday 11th April (10am). The Retreat provides unstructured time to recharge your batteries and to concentrate on your own writing. There is a writing for personal development theme which writers are welcome to dip in and out of. Christine Hollywood hosted for Lapidus with Liz Cashdan of NAWE.
Members of Lapidusand the National Association for Writers in Education (NAWE) gathered on Easter Monday 2014 for our joint annual retreat. 12 writers escaped the pressures of 'real life' in the beautiful setting of Ty Newydd in north Wales. All were members of either Lapidus or NAWE and some of both, so there was much sharing of ideas as the week went on.
A workshop run by Anne Caldwell (NAWE) and Jane Moss (Lapidus) on the first morning stimulated some rich new writing. The house hummed with creativity as people wrote in their rooms and in quiet corners of the house. We are grateful to Anne and NAWE for the partnership and administration that makes this retreat possible.
