The next Retreat will take place from 12-19 September on Isola Maggiore, Lake Trasimeno, Umbria

Returning to the island next year

Whatever your background as a writer, whether you’re new to writing or you’ve been writing for years and are looking for fresh ways to develop your work, this retreat is for you.  Owing to the situation with the current pandemic, the next retreat will now be in autumn 2021, but it’s never too soon to begin planning and looking forward to it …

Join us for seven days on the tiny island of Isola Maggiore in Umbria. This pretty island is steeped in history, with mesmerising sunsets, and a rare tranquillity that makes it a great place to write or just unwind. Choose your own pace and enjoy the island’s delicious food, stroll the paths by the lake or find a secluded spot to write.

Writer, mentor and professional tutor Glynis Charlton will be on hand to provide plenty of support with optional workshops and one to one guidance sessions.

Places are limited to no more than eight, creating space where you can share thoughts, learning and ideas as well as simply write.

“I spent a glorious week on Glynis’s writing retreat … It was the perfect mix of inspiring, practical workshops, wise, insightful tuition and free time to reflect and write in a beautiful setting.” – Lesley
