Let us know of any allergies you may have before you arrive, and we will accommodate your needs

Apart from your imagination you should pack for all weathers. Hopefully we will see some sun so you might want to swim at one of the local beaches. It could of course rain so you will need to be prepared for that. A pair of shoes for walking and layers would be ideal. Casual and comfortable clothes would be best. A small backpack would be handy for carrying your writing materials, water etc.

We have organised everything for you so you can spend time on your writing. You will need to bring any personal items or medication that you may need.

If you have any queries, however small, that have not been answered above, please contact me at info@bereislandcreativewriting.com

We look forward to meeting you on one of our retreats.
