Immersive writing retreat

With over 18 hours between sunrise and sunset, great food, and inspiring company, Midsummer Write is the perfect opportunity to devote time to your writing. There will be workshops to help get you started and to keep you going, and an opportunity for one-to-one mentoring, otherwise you will be free to immerse yourself in your work.
The retreat takes place on Isle Martin, a community-owned island off the north-west coast of Scotland. The amenities are simple, the welcome warm. There is no electricity here, so leave your laptops and tablets behind and bring pens and paper. There is no hot running water so bring a flannel for a wash-down. We will however, have the luxury of flushing toilets, cold running water and delicious meals cooked on the island using local and organic produce where possible.
22 - 24 June 2018

What's Included

crime thriller

The retreat will be located in the Mill House with dormitory style accommodation. Beds will be made up for your arrival and linen is included. All meals are included and there will be a welcome glass of wine on Friday. Meals will be prepared on the island using local and organic produce where possible. As the island is run by volunteers, there will be a few light chores to share. The return ferry crossing and all workshops are also included in the price of your writing retreat.

What to Bring

crime thriller

June is generally a pleasant month in the Highlands, but the weather is changeable at any time of year. Bring waterproofs, warm clothing, a full change of clothes, towels, wellies or walking boots, a flannel and a hot water bottle. Bring swimwear if you fancy a dip in the sea. Don't forget writing pads and pens. Midge nets are available but bring your own repellent if you use it. You would make Em, who deals with Isle Martin candle management, very happy if you brought some light to share in the form of a candle.
