About Wildflower Retreats

We are a recently established venture offering inspiring writing and walking retreats for women identifying as LGBTQ+ in the beautiful location of Calder Valley. The retreats will be a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded friends whilst immersing yourself in your own creativity, inspired by the deep literary heritage of LGBTQ+ friendly Hebden Bridge and surrounds.

The writing workshops are suitable for new writers as well as emerging writers keen to create space for themselves whilst learning more about the craft, structure, plot, characterization and the art of storytelling, be that from a screenwriting, creative fiction or creative non fiction perspective. As well as taught workshops there will also be time to work on your own and receive one to one feedback from an experienced television screenwriter – Caroline Mitchell – who has over 250 tv credits on continuing drama. The afternoons will be spent on guided walks in stunning literary locations where fresh inspiration for your work can be found.

Our retreats aim to offer a warm, friendly and inclusive welcome for those looking to develop their creative writing projects in an inspiring part of the UK, whilst making new and interesting connections with like minded creatives.
