10-day Writing Retreat in Ireland with award-winning author Gerard Collins, April 20-30, 2017
Combine travel and adventure with writing on this unique, 10-day retreat to Ireland! Join Dr. Gerard Collins, an award-winning Newfoundland author and experienced university and writing educator, for this once-in-a-lifetime literary tour of Ireland.
Your writing getaway includes roundtrip air from Saint John to Ireland, 5 nights at Clontarf Castle in Dublin, luxury accommodations in Sligo and Ennis, all breakfasts and most dinners, ground transportation, taxes, and airport fees. We will enjoy stopovers at Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, the haunts and resting place of W.B. Yeats, a boat ride on Lough Gill, sailing to the Isle of Innisfree, and more.
Gerard will give creative writing workshops and host individual meetings with all participants, where the focus is on you and your writing, and where Gerard will provide detailed feedback on your writing. There will be group readings as well as opportunities for grand conversation and inspiration: a thoughtful balance of time spent in the company of other writers and time alone dedicated to your own writing.
It’s the perfect time to go to Ireland, at last, and a rare opportunity to work directly with Gerard, an award-winning author and IMPAC Dublin nominee. All genres and writing levels welcome. Sign up by January 30, 2017. Cost is $4,399 CAD per person based on two travellers, or $5,249 CAD based on single traveller. Land-only rates and air from other gateways is available.
