Thoroughly unique experiences,
the first of their kind. 


Intimate, Retreat-Style Writers' Conferences

Combined with Tours

Learn from Successful Authors, Editors, and Agents
to Become the best you can be.

Take an unforgettable journey that can be your springboard
to a successful career as an author. 

On this inspirational pilgrimage to the land of myth, mystery and magic, you can embrace opportunities to enrich your writing, meet like-minded individuals, and realize your creative dreams.

Your tour package will include private consultations, group classes, workshops, and individual attention aimed at your personal needs. 

In between those classes and workshops, you’ll have all-day or partial-day tours with a professional guide of the most famous, infamous, well-known, and hidden sites in the west of Ireland. From cliffs that soar 700 feet above the Atlantic, to a 12th century castle, to the forest said to be home of the King of the Faeries of Connaught, to the prehistoric dun fort on the island of Inis Mor . . . and that’s just a few of the beautiful places you’ll visit. After these busy tour and writing days, you can have leisurely evening meals with other writers, listen to stories before a fire, or just cozy up with a book.

We have a truly enlightening and inspiring workshop scheduled for 2021: 

 8-15 August 2021 

This conference will be a completely unique and exciting experience for writers at all levels. And it will be geared toward helping participants achieve different goals.

Are you looking for specific craft-related workshops that will teach you to create a thrilling plot, and how to develop characters that stay with readers even after they finish your book? How about learning powerful business techniques from an agent so you can market that manuscript as well as plan a successful course for your writing career? Would you like to learn insider secrets from, and pitch your manuscript? Click on the 8-15 August 2021 tab above to find out more. 

This isn't the kind of tour where you board a giant bus at an ugly-early hour to visit a crowded site with thirty-five strangers. To ensure individualized attention and a friendly atmosphere, this Writers’ Retreat is limited to a minimum of six, and a maximum of twelve participants. Keep an eye on our 'More Bits' page for regular updates, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest news and gossip.
