Get creative with a break in Bath

Bath has a long connection with the world of literature – even the literary heroine Jane Austen once called it home – and with its dramatic architecture and romantic scenery it’s easy to see how it inspired creativity.

If you’ve always fancied trying your hand at writing or you just haven’t taken time to pen anything for a while Bath spa breaks are the ideal opportunity. Not only do they offer the perfect surroundings to get the creative juices flowing, but there are also creative writing groups and classes designed to help the creative find their inner novels.

You won’t need any previous experience of writing, and the benefit of starting in a group is that you’ll have friendly faces on hand to bounce ideas off and seek guidance from as you get used to writing again.

Just Google ‘writing events in Bath’ and you’ll find the website by the same name, and it’s updated regularly with classes, workshops and events organised by keen writers Alex and Jude. Both published writers, the pair are always keen to hear from those who want to get writing, so check what’s going on before your stay.
