Next trip: Creative Writing in Ibiza.  19-26th May 2012

Ibiza may not seem the most obvious place for a writing retreat but anyone who has visited the island will tell you that there is an alternative Ibiza, a world away from the hedonistic club scene.  Artists, writers and bohemians have flocked here for centuries, and it is still renowned for its spiritual and creative energy. 

This course offers the perfect opportunity to gain invaluable advice from established writers and industry professionals, and is designed to benefit writers at any stage of development.

The course will be led by Carol Birch.  Her latest novel Jamrach’s Menagerie was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2011.




Canongate Books Fiction Publishing Director Francis Bickmore, and Head of Publicity Angela Robertson will give invaluable advice on the editorial and publishing process.

Lucy Beresford, author, psychotherapist and columnist for Psychologies Magazine will teach you how to overcome writers block and stay motivated.

CreateEscapes holidays will not only take your writing to the next level, but will also enable you to forge new friendships with like-minded people and create long-lasting memories.
