WRITE IN SCOTLAND. Using the vibrant university city of Dundee as our home base, join us for a week of writing and exploring this beautiful country. We'll go beyond the typical tourist path and get to know the real Scotland.
Led by Peter Murphy, this budget friendly writing retreat will capitalize on his years of experience helping writers transform. His retreats, called Writing Getaways, are designed based on his belief that when writers leave behind the distractions of their busy lives to gather in an encouraging community, they will make breakthroughs in their art.
Peter's unique assignments and insightful feedback have helped thousands of writers find voice and direction. He will challenge you to stretch your imagination as you explore personal archetypes, history and your foreign surroundings to write new material that will surprise and please you.
You will have the opportunity to venture to remote castles, fishing villages, the Highlands and the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If you relish the idea of uninterrupted writing time, supportive workshops and getting to know the real Scotland, learn more and register today.
"Attending was a big deal for me since I'd never been to a writing retreat before. It turned out to be fabulous—the atmosphere was perfect for writing and Peter was an excellent teacher. His lessons were unique and helped uncork my writing, getting me to think and use my writing time wisely. I highly enjoyed the trip and would recommend a Murphy Writing retreat to absolutely anybody, whether a novice or pro." ~ Michelle, Huntsville, TX
