And we’re off!
Winter 2016 – Spring 2017 Timetable at Writing Train.
Feeling a bit like the papal conclave, I am now posting a timetable for the winter session at Writing Train. Only sorry I couldn’t find a good picture of that Vatican stove!

New Year jaunt to Bofin
A week-long New Year writing retreat to Inishbofin will run from 29 December. For an idea of these trips in the past, see:
Fee for the Jaunt, covering individual room accommodation in cosy shared houses, breakfasts and lunches, tuition for the week and a mainline into island life and activities: €675 if booked and 30% deposit paid by November 10. 10% fee increase after this point. (Evening meals at our own expense are held in the Beach bar and restaurant, other homecooked island dining options can be arranged at small surcharge or organised between a group).
I’d be delighted if something here works for you! I’m also often available for editing work, with a couple of months’ advance booking.
Happy autumn, all, and I look forward to working with some of you through the season!
