Zenpens Silent Morning Retreat
Do you dutifully start typing only to be tempted to dive into Instagram, or start cleaning the kitchen, or Skype an old friend…?
Zenpens are offering a short morning retreat on the 22nd June at the Cardiff Quaker Meeting House, 43 Charles Street, Cardiff CF10 2GB.

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.

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

Meeting at 10am will we begin with a short writing exercises and continue silent writing until 12pm.

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.

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.

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

Best wishes,

Zenpens.
