Bere Island Writing Retreat

Bere Island Writing Retreat

Find inspiration and discover your inner voice at a Bere Island Writing Retreat, coordinated by poet Annemarie Ní Churreáin.

Is 2023 the year you are going to connect with your creativity? Where better to find inspiration and discover your inner voice than a Bere Island Writing Retreat.

On the wonderful Bere Island, you’ll find natural beauty and peace, away from the distractions of everyday life,  coordinated by Annemarie Ní Churreáin, who will help you to explore the art and craft of writing poetry.

The words of Michael Hartnett,  ‘the act of poetry is a rebel act’, will act as the prompt for this creative experience, which is open to writers of all levels of experience.

The schedule for the weekend is available here.
