July and August are great months to spend hours by a log fire writing the first draft of that next novel. Therefore winter becomes our time to retreat to Kianinny Bush Cabins, often emerging only to scoff down biscuits and cakes brought by the attendees. The cabins are shared (separate rooms) to facilitate the social aspect of the weekend. Writers thrive off the atmosphere in the common room or wander the bushwalks for inspiration.
On Friday night, mentors will pitch their best qualities and writing style to the attendees who will choose the group led by the mentor they feel will improve or inspire their writing the most. There are two 1.5 hour sessions on Saturday and Sunday morning and the rest of the weekend is devoted to writing.
