Join a small group of SCBWI members aiming to carve out solid working time in the inspiring, luxury environment of Spa. Whatever your project, whatever your stage, dedicating this quality time to plot/sketch/translate/revise/hit a word count/etc. might be just what you need to progress. You can also get to know other SCBWI members, with opportunities to share tips and exchange stories during relaxing walks and social mealtimes.  Whether you work best alone or alongside others, in the comfort of the hotel or in the surrounding woods, we hope to make this Spa Retreat both a rewarding and unforgettable experience!
