Dark Angels Writing Retreat | Bore Place, Kent | June 19 - 23, 2023
Five days of writing, rituals and nature connection at Bore Place over the summer solstice with plenty of time for individual pondering, wondering and wandering – and writing.
Neil Baker and Gillian Colhoun are offering five days of writing, rituals and nature connection at Bore Place in Kent. We’ll be in 500 gloriously unspoilt hectares of the Kent Weald – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – but only 35 minutes on the train from central London and 45 minutes by taxi from Gatwick airport.
With a venue that includes a gorgeous market garden, an organic dairy, and 60 acres of ancient woodland there’ll be bountiful opportunities to forage for the physical and metaphorical fruits within the interior and exterior landscape.
Bore Place is run by a charity that’s committed to helping people live happy, fulfilling and sustainable lives – we feel it will be a perfect venue for some Dark Angels magic.
We’re expecting a lively, stimulating and playful experience, with plenty of time for individual pondering, wondering and wandering – and writing. You don’t need to have completed a course with us before, and you don’t have to think of yourself as a writer to participate fully.
Our plan is to arrive in time to gather in the afternoon of Monday June 19th, with departure before lunch on June 23rd. All rooms are single occupancy, with bathrooms shared.
We’re still musing about food arrangements, but we will be incorporating the local seasonal produce and a possible trip to the local pub.
