Join Apples & Snakes for the return of their Poetry Retreat, a one-day event for poets at all stages to refresh, reboot and connect. The retreat offers creative workshops, discussions and wellness activity to re-energise your practice, soothe your soul and leave you with a new spring in your step.


Yoga and Poetry 10am – 11.30am

With Gemma and Laurie Bolger

A blended session of yoga and creative writing wherein we are encouraged to unite body and mind to let language and light flow through us.

 Hoslistic Voice Bath 11.45am – 12.15pm

With Ola Szmidt

An alternative type of inactive meditation. Participants are encouraged to let go of negativity as you “bathe” in the soothing vibrations of vocal sound. Participants lay in near darkness allowing the voice to resonate through them.

Shared Space Poetry Reading 1pm – 2.00pm

With Jasmine Cooray

Come and be present and connect through shared experience and contemplation of proximity. Participants will gather together to silently read alongside the author. Followed by discussion and writing session.

Inner-Life Drawing 2.20pm – 3.40pm

With Bohdan Piasecki

Take a space at an easel and study our human subjects as they ponder questions of existence. Through observation participants will be encouraged to draw out the internal monologues of our subjects to develop works of character based creative writing.

Intention Setting 3.45pm – 4.00pm

With Rose Bird

As we draw to a close we will gather, check in with ourselves and our bodies.  Preparing to re-enter the outside world we will focus on what we hope to find and what we plan to leave behind.

Pre-book your free place in advance via Eventbrite, or arrive early to avoid disappointment.
