Autumn writing Retreat takes place during
September 20th to 26th 2021.

A week-long, creative writing holiday with a difference – scenic walks, fascinating talks and daily practical writing and editing workshops – all in a land that time forgot, in probably the most scenic part of Ireland, along the famous 'Wild Atlantic Way.'


Plus lively, traditional Irish music concerts; island and castle tours of an awe-inspiring landscape soaked in Celtic legend; tuition in the Gaelic language, as well as Irish ceildhe dancing.  

Location for the retreat: Gweedore, Co Donegal, Ireland
