This facilitated retreat for writers happens annually at the Mount Richmond Estate in the Rai Valley, halfway between Blenheim and Nelson. The 2017 event took place 27-29 October, with Guest Mentor Bridget Auchmuty.
The retreat offers both a writing escape and the opportunity to take part in workshops, structured discussions and informal socialising with other writers. Mount Richmond Estate provides comfortable motel units, a restaurant, and a beautiful setting away from distractions.
All are welcome. Discount for NZSA members.
The 2017 Retreat is now over, but to
register your interest for the future, contact the Top of the South branch at TOSNZSA15@gmail.com
