If you’re seeking new inspiration, need to reconnect with your own songwriting, looking to collaborate or want guidance to help break through a creative block, then five days, in the Knoydart wilderness, with our Writers in Residence will do just that for you!
Our five-day retreats are aimed at songwriters of a certain level and not towards beginners. Each retreat will be mentored by our Writers in Residence, who are award winning, internationally recognised songwriters. All attendees stay together in a big, fully-catered house on the shores of Loch Nevis (meaning Heaven).
Throughout the retreat, our Writers in Residence will share their experiences and approaches to their own songwriting and help us create the environment that will guide, encourage and challenge you dig deeper into your writing abilities.
You'll also have plenty of time for one-to-one sessions with the Writers to talk in depth about you own song writing, any creative struggles they may be experiencing and to receive advice and constructive critique.
This can also include career advice if required.
FIND YOURSELF IN THE WILDERNESS
On the final night we put on our End of Retreat concert in award winning Community Hall right in the heart of Knoydart where you all get to perform your favourite songs that your have written during the week to a live audience.
Now add into the mix great food, conversation, adventure, guitars and whisky by the fire, new friendships, laughter, silent walks in the wilderness, star gazing, the chance to see the Northern Lights, spectacular sunrises and sunsets and rainbows like you’ve never seen… this really will be an inspirational week in the wilderness for all.
