Writing retreat for children's authors - England.

SCBWI Writers’ Retreat 16th-19th May 2008
After attending the SCBWI Writers Day 25th November 2007 I will be amongst those taking advantage of the Writers’ Retreat in May. It promises to be yet another great opportunity to network and gain or hone new skills.
Anyone can attend this retreat for children’s writers, you don’t have to be a member, but it is cheaper if you are. The weekend is held at: Pendrell Hall, Near Wolverhampton. This is nineteenth century Victorian country house set in 10 acres of landscaped gardens/grounds. Visit their website for directions etc: http://www.pendrell-hall.org.uk/index.php Accommodation and all meals are included in the price of £270 for members. Check out the SCWBI website for pricing details. http://www.britishscbwi.org/
The weekend programme starts on Friday evening with dinner with likeminded writers and relaxing before the real work begins. Networking on the Friday night would be advisable.
During Saturday and Sunday various seminars, talks and networking will take place. There will be plenty of time to make new friends and to get chat to some of your favourite authors or illustrators. Julia Golding, award winning author of Cat Royal series and The Diamond of Drury Lane will be in attendance along with Shoo Rayner author/illustrator of many children’s books. But you will be able to work on your own work or partake in creative exercise along with having the opportunity to have your work critiqued.
After breakfast on Monday morning, Tessa Strickland, co-founder of Barefoot Books, will talk about the publishing house, its future and how to submit. A friendly lunch will bring the weekend to a close.
