I am beyond excited to share that I will be co-facilitating Pelumbra's Lambay Island Writing Retreat in March 2022. It was something of an easy sell when Miriam Gosling of Pelumbra called to invite me to join Jonathan Gosling in leading their writers' retreat on a stunning private island off the coast of Dublin. The opportunity to work alongside Jonathan, whose work has inspired me throughout my career, would have been enough to tempt me but throw in walks in this unspoilt wilderness to watch the puffins and other seabirds and cosying down by a roaring fire with other writers to share our love for what we do, well that sounds like heaven to me. So if you are a new, experienced or aspirational writer of fiction, poetry, non-fiction, academic research or you would simply like some dedicated time to explore how putting pen to paper might change your life, then please visit Pelumbra's website for more information and how to book.
