Creative Writing Break

With Chris Leonard

Monday 10th September 4:30pm – Friday 14th September 9:30am

Chris loves to see people grow in confidence and friendship on the writing holidays she leads and beautiful Ashburnham always provides a safe, encouraging place for people to produce more than they thought possible. It’s a delight to watch the Holy Spirit at work within all the creativity – how He brings something different and often unexpected each time and to each individual.

Chris’ themed morning workshops use pictures, words and music to inspire you. No writing experience is necessary, only something to write with and on, plus your willingness to have a go. Afternoons are free to write, read, walk, chat, pray, doze… then everyone shares some of that day’s work in a small group before dinner. There’s plenty of time to laugh and relax over meals and during some DIY entertainment in the evenings, while the final evening proves a special time as we break bread together. 

£238 standard room / £288 en-suite (ACT246)

Chris Leonard has enjoyed leading hundreds of creative writing workshops and several dozen retreats ever since 1999, including very many at Ashburnham. She’s had 21 books, published – plus Bible notes etc.

Our church weekend was the best we have had for years. The location, the facilities and the staff were outstanding. We can't wait to come back next year.
