Myth | Walking Sacred Sites
Inis Mór, Aran Islands, Galway & Doolin Co. Clare, Ireland
with
Book Writing Coach & Author Irene Graham

Irene’s retreats are renowned by international writers, not only for her innovative techniques that show you how to focus, develop, create and write your stories…but for weaving inspiration and creativity into your writing journey through walking sacred sites, exploring myth and legends, and engaging in music and meaningful discussion.

Gourmet food, luxurious private room and a memorable journey is assured.

If you want to write a publishable novel this is the workshop to find out how. You will return home invigorated, with a deep understanding and knowledge of story, motivated to complete your book.

Our Sept Fiction Retreat runs back to back with our Memoir Retreat, so you have the option to attend both.

 
The Workshop

Using right-brain/left brain learning techniques our aim is to trigger and deepen imaginative concepts, tap into life experiences, strengthen writing voice, shape characters, form setting, frame theme, create structure – and develop your story so that it’s ready to hop off the page!

You will be encouraged to explore story in a genre of your choice, be it Literary Fiction, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Crime, Romance, Children’s, Popular Fiction, Dystopian…or to discover and find your genre as you progress through the workshop.

The workshop is open to new, emerging and established writers to:

  • create a short story
  • develop a novel
  • work on a current manuscript

You receive personal feedback on your story throughout the workshop.
