Do you dutifully start typing only to be tempted to dive into Instagram, or start cleaning the kitchen, or Skype an old friend…?

Zenpens is an exciting new writer’s retreat based in Cardiff City Centre. Adapted from the Writer’s Army workshops lead by the New York playwright Anne Washburn, Zenpens allows writers to concentrate solely on their work in meditative silence.

Togetherness is a spur . The presence of other writers can allow you to work longer and more productively than you normally would and helps to move you through periods of inattention and malaise.

Cool, so how does it work?

Zenpens is a one day silent writers retreat. No phones. No social media. No distractions.

Meeting at 9:45 am for a short debrief and writing exercises, we start working in earnest at 10 am until 1 pm. An hour lunch. Then more silent writing from 2 pm until 6 pm.

The most important rule is that everyone starts and leaves at the same time. It’s a quiet space, but most importantly it’s a space where everyone is working steadily together.

We also ask that people not work during lunch. Periods of not working and switching off completely are vital for overall productivity.

What’s on offer?

A supportive space to begin something new or rehash something old.

New networking possibilities.

Writing exercises to boost creativity.

Free tea and coffee facilities.

How much?

Money collected at the retreat is used to pay for the space and its upkeep. If you can, please pay the suggested donation of £8 or £5 concession.

This sounds right for me, when’s the next one?

Zenpens will be taking place on the 20th April at the John Dennithorne Room, Quaker Meeting House, 43 Charles Street, Cardiff CF10 2GB.

How can I get in touch?  

Spaces are limited, so please email your interest to Paul Stoyle at zenpenssilentretreat@gmail.com or visit https://zenpens-silentwritersretreats.yolasite.com/ for more information.

Best wishes,

Zenpens.

After a really exciting ACW-funded first phase in Cardiff and Bulgaria, Projekt Ikarus is looking to recruit a Producer to work with us on the next phase.

Experience of international touring, fundraising and experimental/ physical theatre preferred.

Could this be you, or someone you know? Get in touch: emrysbarnes@gmail.com

We are presenting the Cardiff premiere of Philip Ridley's beautiful play VINCENT RIVER in the next few weeks, and are in the process of Crowdfunding in order to make this important play happen in Wales.

We still have a way to go, so would really appreciate any sized donations towards our final target. We understand that not everybody is in the position to donate, so if you are interested in project, and fancy helping out an Emerging Theatre company in staging the best possible production of this play, we would equally appreciate just a share of the Crowdfunder link on social media platforms, to continue to spread the word in the last fortnight of Crowdfunding.

We hope you can help us out. Diolch yn fawr, Luke and the Team.

I'm taking part in Theatr Iolo's Plattform programme this year, in partnership with The Riverfront in Newport.

Plattform is an artist development programme, this year the theme is making theatre for families.

There will be a weeks R&D in the last half of October and Im I interested in developing a show around climate and environment, about the decisions we make as adults and how they will effect future generations, about how we can create a more hopeful narrative. Im interested in creating labyrinth of unexpected spaces where a story can unfold through performance, sound and/or video. 

Are you a designer (perhaps working with found materials), a sound designer, a poet, a performer, a musician, a digital or ANY OTHER KIND OF ARTIST based in Cardiff, Newport or Bristol who would like to be involved? 

if so email me hello(at)gavinporter.co.uk or Im on Twitter @gavinPorter_ and lets meet for coffee.
