Grrrls to the Front: October 2023

Grrrls to the Front Autumn 2023

Sat/Sun 28-29 October

Burlington Hotel, Folkestone

Welcome, welcome to our only Autumn in-person retreat at the Burlington Hotel in Folkestone! We’ve run FIVE sold-out retreats this year and this is our one and only for Autumn so get booking… 🍂🍁 ðŸ‚

Join us for two days of creative nurturing by the sea with guidance and support from Write like a Grrrl founder and award-winning writer, Kerry Ryan.

Booking a writing retreat is self-care. You’ll spend two nurturing days with understanding, welcoming and supportive humans who will encourage your creativity and allow you to nourish yourself in the best way possible. Evening social events are optional. Your time is your own and you shape your retreat to suit you. So what are you waiting for?

Retreats are notoriously expensive so WLAG has worked hard to make this two-day retreat affordable. You book accommodation of your choice which matches your budget & on booking the retreat, you’ll be sent suggestions of where you can stay. Folkestone offers a range of wonderful accommodation from budget to luxe.

Lunch with vegan/veg options both days, coffee and tea & biscuits, and a one-to-one session with Kerry are included in the retreat cost. You’ll be guided through gentle writing sprints on Saturday & Sunday and leave the retreat with a clear idea of how to write to Christmas and beyond...


Saturday 28 October 9:30am-4:30pm (option to write until 6pm)

Sunday 29 October 10am-3:30pm (option to write until 6pm)

Price: £129.99

Numbers limited to 20. You can pay in instalments either via Paypal or via WLAG. If you’d prefer the latter, just email and we’ll get you sorted.

Each day you’ll set your writing intentions and be encouraged to meet those goals with set writing sprints. We’ll also have regular check-ins during the day with lots of breaks to keep you going.

We start at 9:30 am on Saturday at the Burlington Hotel with check-in and warm ups. We then have writing sprints up until 4:30pm (option to write until 6pm both days).

You’ll have time for walks after lunch and lots of tea & biscuits throughout the day.

On Sunday, we start at 10:00 am and we finish at 3:30pm and send you off to meet Autumn full of positivity and confidence.
