Virtual Writing Retreat

The Friday Salon Virtual Writers’ Retreat started in response to a wish expressed by #FriSalon participants that they would love to get together at a writing retreat but travel and cost were barriers to this being accessible to all. So, we trialled a Virtual Writing Retreat in February 2022. It was a great success. We all valued the dedicated time to write, enjoyed meeting together on Zoom, and appreciated the input from an expert guest.

There is no cost to attend the Virtual Writing Retreat apart from your time. We are planning three a year:




If you are interested in joining the next Virtual Writing Retreat please email me at so that I can send you links for the Zoom calls. There will be limited space so that everyone has time to fully contribute to discussion. Priority will be given to #FriSalon participants.
