Room To Write
Spiel Unlimited courses at Ceridwen in Carmarthenshire
Fancy time away freeing up your creative juices with like-minded people? Want to pick up a
pen, let your imagination wander, cast your words to the winds? Ever thought of treating
yourself to a writing weekend?
Ceridwen is all about inspiration. Here you will enjoy fabulous food, cheerful companionship,
spectacular scenery and workshops that entertain, engage and exhilarate – giving you the
space to create. Invention. Expression. Freedom.
Whether your interest is in poetry, prose or performance, each course will provide
opportunities for you to explore and expand your writing skills. Liven up lines, pep up
paragraphs, stanza and deliver. Take part in a variety of exercises, discussions, readings,
tutorials, group sessions, games, walks and other adventures to stretch both brain and body!
The courses will be delivered by writers Marcus Moore and Sara-Jane Arbury, who return
to Ceridwen for a sixth year, following the success of their previous Room To Write, More
Room To Write and Gift Of The Gab weekends. Comments from previous participants include:
“mere words cannot express how much the weekend meant to me”

I learned much that will keep me busy.”

Sara-Jane and Marcus work together as Spiel Unlimited. Sara-Jane was the Voices Off
Director at Cheltenham Literature Festival, has collaborated with the Arts Council, BBC,
Oxford University Press and Bloodaxe Books, and was Herefordshire’s first writer-inresidence. Marcus has written Call My Bluff scripts for the BBC, had poems published by
Macmillan, and run countless workshops in schools, libraries and prisons.
The Ceridwen Centre is a large,
converted old smithy, tucked away in
the beautiful Teifi Valley, only 25
minutes by road from Carmarthen.
