Above the Strandline
Fri 14 Sep 2018 to Sun 16 Sep 2018
An off-grid writing retreat on Isle Martin, a community-owned island off the north-west coast of Scotland. Here you will have the chance to leave mainland life behind and concentrate on writing for a few precious days. The weekend will feature a mix of tutored workshops and free writing time. You will also have the option of a short 1-to-1 mentoring session.

Following on from the success of the 2017 retreat, Above the Strandline is returning in 2018, with one major change: this year the retreat will be open to anyone aged 18 and over.

The amenities are simple, the island beautiful, the welcome warm. There is no electricity, 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, a warming fire, and delicious meals cooked on the island using local produce.

Dates: Friday 14 - Sunday 16 September 2018
Location: Isle Martin, North West Scotland
Cost: £220
