Freefall Retreat at 2017 Yarck Victoria
12 February, 2017
Late last year, I posted about a residential writers’ retreat I attended at the Andana property, near Yarck Victoria.
The retreat’s leader, Dr Barbara Turner-Vesselago, has run ‘freefall writing’ courses in Australia, Canada, and Great Britain. This approach encourages writers to free up their imagination, let the words pour onto paper/screen, and go ‘fearward’ to achieve powerful writing.
The retreat’s organiser, Kirsten Cameron, has advised that another residential Freefall Writing workshop will be held at the same property in October 2017. The spacious Andana home is located in a lovely part of Australia, with rolling green hills, plus charming small towns to visit when you need a break from writing. Most participants live in shared rooms, but there are also two spacious private rooms.
Dates: 22-28 October, 2017.
Fees: $1465 private room with shared bathroom, $1645 private room with ensuite, $885 non-residential.
Meals: Provisions are available for participants to make their own breakfast and lunch. Each night, a pair of writers prepare one evening meal for the group—individuals who do not wish to cook cab pay an extra $100.
Costs: $4oo deposit to secure a place. $50 non-refundable administration fee. Cancellations refundable up to 14 July. Full payment required by 28 July.
