What Makes a Nightwriters Workshop Unique?
require a delicate balance between solitude and companionship
in order to be productive. Nightwriters seminars try to provide
this in settings that are beautiful, stress-free, and give you
enough space to be alone, but not isolated. Most of you have
moved heaven and earth to free up the time to be here. Now we
want you to feel as if you’ve got all the time in the world.
Think of a 19th century house party, where the ambience is cozy,
the meals memorable (and prepared by someone else) all you have
to do is think about your writing. Or not think about it. Part
of the process is to hang your imagination on a hook for a few
hours every day. Take a nap, or walk. Some very serious writing
gets started at Nightwriters seminars. We think it’s because
while you are with us you have the opportunity to light a good
fire beneath your imagination and - as importantly - pile on
enough inspirational wood to keep it going for a long time once
you return home.
