Travel back in time to Kangaroo Island – considered Australia’s Galapagos – with author Inga Simpson (Nest, Mr Wigg, Where the Trees Were) in this week-long immersion in writing and in place. We’ll explore the island’s unique landscapes, natural and human histories, flora and fauna (did you know the island was once home to a dwarf emu?!) – and of course its fine food and wine.

KIEmuWe’ll be staying in historic lighthouse-keepers’ cottages, and, with Time Travel’s archaeologist Chris Carter as our host and  guide, traversing the island’s wild coastline, and getting to know some of its abundant wildlife and fascinating histories – including the first non-Indigenous settlement of South Australia.

In between all that stunning scenery, Inga will lead daily writing workshops, focusing on techniques for bringing the natural world to life on the page. How to describe what you see, remember – and imagine. You’ll develop a toolkit for evocative description, learn how to harness story and emotion, and to anchor plot, character and structure to place. Each workshop uses a combination of instruction, examples and practical writing exercises, with plenty of opportunity for discussion.

We’ll consider the traditions of nature writing, as well as issues such as anthropomorphism, notions of belonging, and acknowledging the whole history of a place. You’ll also receive one-on-one feedback on your writing (submitted beforehand), and, of course, have plenty of time to write – or just wander, in search of inspiration.

The retreat is ideal for nonfiction and fiction writers at all levels, particularly those with an interest in nature writing, environmental, travel or history writing, memoir, or place-based fiction. Unplugged from the mainland, you’ll not only explore the island but learn how to better capture a sense of place on the page – and tap deeper into your own creativity.

This is the first in our Retreat to an Island series, which combines travel with learning, offering a unique experience staying some of Australia’s most beautiful islands.

The miniature sandscapes of ridge and valley pressed into the soles of my feet and for days after the walk I would feel a memory of that pressure and pattern” ~ Robert Macfarlane.

Start your writing summer early by spending a weekend immersed in writing and place on the pristine far south coast of New South Wales.

Writing workshops will be led by Dr Inga Simpson, author of Nest and Mr Wigg. You’ll learn more about the genre of nature writing, and through a mixture of tuition, examples, practical writing exercises and discussion, hone your skills for describing the natural world and anchoring character and plot to place. You’ll also consider issues around writing for advocacy, anthropomorphism v anthropocentrism, and notions of belonging.

Upcoming Nature Writing Retreats

tent-balconyOlvar Wood is excited to announce a new suite of nature writing retreats.

Our inaugural Shallow Crossing Nature Writing Retreat at The Escape, in May, was a great success. From 2016, we will be running the retreat each year in September/October as part of the Milton ArtsFest.

In the meantime, we can confirm that we will be offering a weekend nature writing retreat at Kiola, NSW (4-6 December).

Our Retreat to an Island series, in cahoots with Time Travel Australia, will kick off in March 2016 with a week-long retreat on Kangaroo Island.

In 2016, we also hope to offer nature writing retreats in Port Macquarie and Lamington National Park – more soon.

In 2017, again with Time Travel, we will be beginning our Nature Writing (and Walking) UK series with a journey across Britain – details soon.

In 2018, we are planning a one-off nature writing and ornithology trip to Peru!
