We are helping Ben make his book-writing dreams come true later this year. It's a great concept with a beautiful motive – and a really cool piece of wall art as an incentive gift. We've pledged to help him... could you?
A Me-Treat is a treat designed just for you... indulge your senses, inspire your soul, nourish your body and stretch your writing muscles as you get under the skin of the place you are in and explore your creative potential. Me-Treats are designed and led by author, journalist, poet and mentor, Jo Parfitt.

Spend time in the company of other like-minded people. Days begin and end with words. Mornings are for inspired learning; a time to immerse yourself in the best your location has to offer and be mindful of the everyday. Afternoons are for following your flow, relaxing and completing a piece of writing. You see, at six o'clock it's time for the highlight of a Me-Treat – reading, sharing and connecting over a drink or two as we give feedback on the day's creations. Then it's time for dinner, with wine and more meaningful conversation. Some retreats include optional yoga. Partners and friends welcome at reduced rates. Fees include accommodation, breakfast, dinner and excursions.
