European Writers Retreat

Do you dream of getting away to write, but need some guidance on the next steps for your novel? Or do you want to meet and work with other writers, but in a more intimate setting than a writing conference? A writing retreat at Casa de Ribeira might just be the right thing for you.

European writers retreat

24 to 28 may 2018

with James McSill

Whereas writer’s residencies are mostly about working in solitude, and conferences focus on networking and lectures, writing retreats fall somewhere in between.

James McSill´s Retreats for writers are in beautiful locations – Like Gramado and Canela, in Brazil; Brian´s Head, USA; North Yorkshire, in the UK — (where your creative juices will flow more easily), and offer a combination of workshops, tours and interaction with a small group of writers. They’re a great way to combine your holidays with inspiration, networking — and, of course, writing.

A retreat is an investment in your career, as well as an opportunity to get away. If they’re out of your price range, then perhaps a writing residency would be a better fit. Or, check out this list of grants for writers.

This Retreat will be offered to Portuguese, Spanish and English-speaking writers. The workshops will be conducted at different times so that all will take the advantage of a very small group. The one-to-one sessions will also be in the days assigned to your language, or you can contact James McSill if you need any quick tip or urgent advice on your writing.

Training in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
