Our funds are very limited so we are unable to offer subsidies. However, the retreat is run on a not-for-profit basis and the fee includes dinner on Monday 6th, all meals on the 7th and breakfast and lunch on the 8th March, plus accommodation. Also included in the price are additional refreshments, informal writing workshops and morning yoga sessions (allocated on a first come first served basis).

POWS members                                  £200

Other BPS Members                           £225

Non BPS members                              £250

The POWS retreat is open to all feminist psychologists and will provide you with some protected time away from distractions to make significant progress on a writing task.  You will be able to work alone or with others and to participate as you wish in the range of activities that will be on offer.

The retreat will take place in Rydal Hall, the 17th century mansion which is the former home of poet William Wordsworth. It contains several lounges, a library and plenty of additional spaces for writing individually or collectively.  Rydal Hall has a bar, a teashop with internal and external seating, a 34 acre estate which features formal Edwardian gardens, woodlands, ponds and a waterfall and is surrounded by the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.
