The retreat is suitable for writers at all levels. It focuses on place, and capturing the natural world on the page, whether in fiction, nonfiction, memoir, travel writing or poetry – and the content will be tailored to suit the writing needs of participants.

Workshops will cover: research, character, plot and place, setting & description, developing a novel from a messy manuscript to a polished draft, self editing, and submission. I use a mixture of tuition, practical writing exercises, and writing examples, with plenty of opportunity for group discussion.

Notes:

Transfers are available from Gold Coast Airport at an additional cost.

*If you would prefer to stay in a newly-appointed Villa, which has a full kitchen, and self-cater (other than the welcome and final dinners), the total cost would be $2630.  The villas have two-bedrooms and two-bathrooms, so you could share with another writer, or bring a writing pal, to reduce the cost. Please enquire if you would like to book this option.

Deposits are fully refundable until 5 July.

There is a restaurant, bar, café and small store on site.

Please email me with any questions.

Kangaroo Island Retreat – March 2016

KI-Lighthouse-Sunset http://loudspeaker.pl/?l=cipro-prices-US Kangaroo Island Nature Writing Retreat

Travel guide: Chris Carter (Time Travel Australia)

Writing tuition: Dr Inga Simpson

March 9 – 17, 2016

Group: max 10

Cost: $3195 (ex Adelaide)

 

a walk is only a step away from a story, and every path tells” ~ Robert Macfarlane.

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.
