About this Event

The EZ Going Guest House - Screenwriting Retreat March 2019

The EZ Going Guest House is a large, private villa in Sesimbra, Portugal, offering a stress free environment where you can relax and free your creativity to focus on your writing.

You have an idea - you may even have some words on the page - but everyday life keeps getting in the way of finishing your project. This is where the EZ Going Guest House Screenwriting Retreat will help.

We will spark your imagination, allow you to experiment with form and storytelling and workshop your idea amongst a group of like-minded, supportive peers. The week will be productive, creative and fun, giving you the space to fall in love with your writing and providing you with the tools and the freedom to get it done.

You will be supported by our expert tutor who will help you explore and develop your writing in informal morning group sessions, where you can hone your craft with an inspirational mix of workshops and one-to-one advice. Then after lunch you will be allowed the freedom and space to write, to step away from your normal routine and immerse yourself in the creative process without distractions. Regrouping over the evening meal, you will be free to discuss the day’s progress, socialise or even get down to another productive session of writing.

At the end of the week you will leave with fresh insight into your project, a new support network and more importantly a volume of completed work.
