Just Write It! offers writing workshops in beautiful Suffolk surroundings.

The workshops will be taking place in the beautiful surroundings of Gunton Hall Coastal Village, where participants will enjoy the 50 acres of gardens and secluded woodland, and will be able to draw inspiration from walks around the fresh water lake or in the walled garden.Walled Garden 1

The workshops are facilitated by published authors who are experienced and successful, and who are delighted to be passing on their skills and knowledge. The whole writing journey from idea to printed page is covered, and will include getting started, planning, researching, persevering, editing, finishing, publishing and marketing.

The workshops run from Friday 21st November to Monday 24th November.  It’s possible to book a single day, or sign up for all four.  Prices start from as little as £12 for a day, and there’s a discount for anyone signing up for the four days.  But… there are only a few places left!

The atmosphere at Gunton Hall Coastal Village is ideal for new writers who want support and have questions, or more experienced authors who would like time free from distractions to finish that novel or biography. Participants are free to join in any of the writing workshops, and/or join other writers for meal times and optional readings.  There will also be the entertainment in the evenings for those who would like to stay. There will be time in between workshops to write, think, walk or swim.

‘We still use mint to combat nausea and to settle the stomach, and research has proved that the herb stimulates alertness. In one NASA-funded study, scientists from Wheeling (W.Va.) Jesuit University found that the smell of peppermint lowered fatigue by 15 percent, increased alertness by 30 percent and decreased frustration by 25 percent.’

Just Write It!                                                                                        

      Helping those who want to write…to write

Just Write It! will be running a variety of writing workshops on the East Coast, in Suffolk this year.

Many people say, ‘I want to write a book but don’t know where to start’, or, ‘I haven’t got the time’, or ‘There are too many distractions.’

If you think that you haven’t got the time, look at what you do in your day and see if you can write a little bit, even if it’s only for half an hour, it’s a start.

Knowing where to start can be difficult and the Just Write It! workshop[s] will help with this.

Too many distractions! Just Write It! can identify with this and have included four-day weekend workshops on the programme.

Workshops for those who have never written to those who want to finish writing that book and know about publishing.

All writing workshops are led by published authors to give you a real writing workout. Yes, they have written the books and are wearing the t-shirts! You will have the opportunity to interact with others through group discussion, writing exercises and inspiring walks through the glorious grounds of Gunton Hall Coastal Village.

Workshops are held on a Saturday, and the autumn weekend workshops run from Friday to the Monday.
