Join a small group of writers for a week of writing at the Welsh countryside. The retreat is led by editor and writer Victoria Villasenor. Victoria is a long time editor for a New York publishing house, as well as a multi-published writer. She runs England based Global Words / Global Word-smiths, a company that works with aspiring writers as well as marginalized communities on writing projects.

One of the most difficult parts of writing is finding the time to write. And, once you’ve written, it can be hard to find someone to give you honest feedback. This week of workshops and tutorials will be creative and special, and the knowledge and support you gain will last for years to come. Not to mention the friendships you’ll develop with other writers!

To get the most out of the week, you will be encouraged to share your writing with the rest of the group in evening readings, and to offer and receive feedback with your fellow students. This way, you get a well-rounded response to your work from people who understand what it is to be working through a piece of writing.
Each attending writer will get personalized, professional feedback and critiques of their work, from both a creative and a commercial perspective.

Your partner isn’t a writer....why not bring them along? They’re welcome to join you. There’s plenty for them to do while you’re writing, including: a visit to the recently restored Cardigan Castle or the National Trust Llanerchaeron estate at the colour-ful seaside town of Aberaeron; Devil's Bridge; Cenarth Falls, the Welsh Wildlife Centre at Cilgerran, or the many public gardens, farmers markets, antique shops, galleries and craft centres in this peaceful coastal county.
