Writing Retreat - Outdoors and Garden

9 Pins90 Followers
Novel Writing Retreats Australia will be moving into a dedicated retreat property in Taroona, Tasmania (just south of Hobart) in January 2014 to commence novel writing retreats from February 2014. This board will showcase the grounds of the retreat property and serve as a place for discussion about gardening and outdoor environments for writers.
This outdoor seating area can serve as a place to sit and chat, a place to stage readings and as an extension of the adjacent barbecue area.  www.novelwritingretreatsaustralia.com

This large patio provides a great outdoor space for reading, writing, socialising or just enjoying the bush view.  The patio adjoins the ground floor kitchen and dining area, making it a nice option for lunch in good weather.
