Congratulations to Anna Fleming who won a free place in the competition to promote this event!


Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th July 2019


Join us for a three-day creative writing workshop in the beautiful surroundings of Cromarty. This course is tailored for all levels of creative writing skill and experience, poetry or prose.


We will draw upon our surroundings, spending time outdoors to develop our observation and awareness of the things that characterise Cromarty.


Our goal is to discover new ways of communing with and writing the sea and the land. We will be led by Helen Moore, an award-winning ecopoet and socially engaged artist based in Moray.

Listen here to Helen's  recording, in seven parts of her beautifully evocative and inspiring poem Findhorn Bay, Waves of Flow & Flight.

We are delighted to announce this writing retreat, to be held at the Old Brewery, Cromarty.


Leave your daily life behind and immerse yourself in the creative ambiance of the workshop, with its comfortable accommodation and excellent catering… you will emerge relaxed and energised, with new writing skills to take your work forward in 2019
