Write, refresh, retreat … in Italy with Glynis Charlton
Sat 19 Sep 2015 to Sat 26 Sep 2015
How does a week’s escape to a tiny island sound? On Isola Maggiore, in Umbria, there are no cars, just pheasants, old olive groves and a handful of people
Largely unchanged since the 15th century, the island sits in Italy’s fourth biggest lake. Whether you already write, are a beginner dipping your toe in the water, or are just longing for somewhere to reflect and find fresh inspiration, this writing week could be for you.

Led by Yorkshire writer and tutor, Glynis Charlton, this is a flexible retreat, giving you six clear days to enjoy however you please.  

There are workshops Mon-Fri, one-to-one feedback sessions, plenty of friendly support, and the chance to explore the island with the help of a local guide. Everything is included in the price, but within that you have the option to take up as much or as little as you wish.
