    The Synopsis: Our Winter Writing Retreat in 2023

    Join bestselling crime writer Jonathan Whitelaw for a crime writing retreat with a twist. Six days exploring, plotting, and crafting your perfect crime story in Egypt, the country that inspired the queen of crime herself: Agatha Christie.

    Following a tour of some of Egypt’s most iconic landmarks, you’ll board a traditional sailboat (a Dahabiya) on the Nile, where you’ll partake in the creative writing retreat for the next five nights.

    While onboard, you’ll work alongside fellow sleuths taking part in practical writing exercises and group discussions.

    There’ll be feedback sessions and individual writing time. By the end of this creative writing holiday, you will have developed your ideas and progressed your work.
