A Me-Treat is a treat designed just for you... indulge your senses, inspire your soul, find your voice and stretch your writing muscles as you get under the skin of the place you are in and explore your creative potential. Me-Treats are designed and led by author, journalist, poet and mentor, Jo Parfitt.
Days begin and end with words and sharing in a safe space. Mornings are for inspired learning. Afternoons are for following your flow and me-time. At six o'clock it's time for the highlight of a Me-Treat – reading, sharing and connecting over a drink or two as we give feedback on the day's creations. Then it's time for dinner, with wine and meaningful conversation. Fees always include tuition, meals and excursions (where applicable). Most include accommodation too.
“Eye-opening and heart-opening. It blew my mind.”
“I felt I was writing holistically, delving deep into myself, allowing words to flow and find their own place.”
You need to come on a Me-Treat if...
You love words and would like to spend time with others who care about nature, good conversation, people and places. Write not to be understood but to understand who you are, what matters and what you should be writing.
