Writing Retreat With Walking

8th June 2020 - 13th June 2020

£815

‘It is not down on any map; true places never are’ (Melville). An experiential week including idiosyncratic map-making, literary walks and personal songlines. Each morning will be spent on guided walks exploring local landscapes of woods, moors and rivers, with a focus on mapping from different perspectives. The rest of the day will be for the creation, through your own eyes and with your own words, of the hidden places and secret worlds of landscapes outside us and within. We will also explore the politics of land and the vital importance of writing about – and for – the living world. Moral compass (and wellies) required. We welcome writers of all genres and levels of experience.
