The Hurst, The John Osborne Arvon Centre, Shropshire 14-19/3/16 

It’s hard to believe that it was only last week I was in the company of sixteen talented BAME or LGBTQ writers as part of Women In The Spotlight, Three Minute Theatre and Commonword at The Hurst Arvon retreat in Shropshire. 
A beautiful place where we all had the opportunity to get creative far away from daily distractions and the internet. The house and gardens were the former home of playwright John Osborne. The grounds boast Redwoods, wild orchids, surrounded by the forest-covered Shropshire Hills and sits within 26 acres of woodland, with a spring-fed lake and inspiring walks. 
Here under the mentorship of our two amazing tutors, Salena Godden for performance poetry and Ola Animashawun for scriptwriting, we all had the opportunity to develop our craft in ways that we needed to. Tanika Gupta, acclaimed playwright, shared an intimate evening with us. We also developed communal cooking skills, shared experiences through our work and bonded in friendship. A thoroughly inspiring week over way too soon! Xxx
