Event Details

SU Writing Camp Weekender | Oct 12th-15th 2018 | Secret Location: South England Country Side

For semi-professional and emerging writing talent. Connecting generations of writers for synch and ‘who’s looking’ pitch briefs alongside engineers and acoustic session musicians to complete recordings of your songs.

Are you ready for SU PRO Writing Retreat? Why not join us for a weekend away to meet and write with other keen writers, connect with your passion for the pen, take a moment to step into the countryside away from daily life and leave with recorded versions of your songs and some new friends to push you and your pen from passion to profession. Workshops with pros in pop and synch focus on both the creative and the business. Song a day challenge to create one artist pitch and synch from active tip sheets.

How it works?

We accommdate a small group of writers in a secret location in the British countryside to gain the full intensive experience staying in the house for 3 days to collaborate, learn, unite and ignite new creative ideas. It is possible to join us for full board and have a bed to stay, prices are based on sharing with 2-3 people. Single rooms avialable upon request. It is also possible to purchase a place to just attend for the activities. Whatever suits you, you will be welcome to stay as long as required to complete your songs and enjoy our parties each evening.

The Friday night before

We offer boarding and a mixer of drinks, nibbles and games to break the ice from 7pm the evening before.


7am: Yoga, meditation and mindfulness (optional)

8am: Each morning you join for breakfast together, connect and discuss all the things you love about music.

9am: You will have a motivational seminar by your SU Camp leader and industry speakers in the mornings and/or afternoons.

9.30-1.30: You will be split into groups and write for current pitches.

1.30-2pm A light lunch is served where it is optional to take a break, and then it's back to work.

2-6pm in the evening there is a dinner together, wine and alchol is not provided but you are welcome to drink while we enjoy performance and feedback of songs so far.

We aim for a song a day on the camp with the evenings being available to complete final parts or join the party.

All repeats for the second day.


On the final Monday we meet the producers and record all songs with the option to play and sing within your group or have the producers play and the camp session singer perform your demos for you. The producer will provide a rough mix as well as your stems and you will then be able to continue with production with any of the producers should you wish.

A light lunch is served.

By 5pm we gather for nibbles, drinks and listen to the mixed recordings of all songs played through the PA. We give feedback then cheers and raise a toast to a great bond and a weekender of great writing.


-You will have access to professional session musicians, producers and at least one pro session singer to record your song(s).

-You will get an acoustic demo of a sync song and a artist pitch song you have written on the weekender, feedback in the evenings and be able to request extra tuition with the camp leader if you feel you want extra boost.

-You will meet other writers, create great bonds, expand your network, meet 3 producers, session musicians and the resident artist.

- you will expand you knowledge but most of all, you will leave happy.
