On this inspirational pilgrimage to the land of myth, mystery and magic, you can embrace opportunities to enrich your writing, meet like-minded individuals, and realize your creative dreams.
Your tour package will include private consultations, group classes, workshops, and individual attention aimed at your personal needs.
In between those classes and workshops, you’ll have all-day or partial-day tours with a professional guide of the most famous, infamous, well-known, and hidden sites in the west of Ireland. From cliffs that soar 700 feet above the Atlantic, to a 12th century castle, to the forest said to be home of the King of the Faeries of Connaught, to the prehistoric dun fort on the island of Inis Mor . . . and that’s just a few of the beautiful places you’ll visit. After these busy tour and writing days, you can have leisurely evening meals with other writers, listen to stories before a fire, or just cozy up with a book.
During the conference week, three multi-published author/editors will teach a variety of craft topics like, how to make a premise more compelling, a plot more concise, and create characters that are lifelike enough to walk off the page. You’ll experience in-depth workshops applicable to your current work in progress, and also receive individualized professional feedback from both author/editors. At the end of the week, you'll leave the Emerald Isle with memories of faerie forests and castles, and ammunition to make your story stand out.
