Writer Retreat


A limited number of writers may apply to attend a new writing retreat in South Australia’s Clare Valley based in a beautiful turn of the previous century stone cottage in Auburn. The property is owned by McIntosh Books Pty Ltd and will now be the home of the Fiona McIntosh Writers’ Retreat for new and emerging writers who need to work intensively on a project.

To attend the retreat, you would need to demonstrate one of the following:

  • A working manuscript that is underway and needing development to make it commercially viable.
  • A finished manuscript that needs finessing with a view to submission to a publisher.

PLEASE NOTE: The retreat is on HOLD until 2020 and has been replaced – due to demand – by MICRO MASTERCLASS for six alumni writers with working manuscripts underway.  

Almond Tree Cottage offers accommodation for three writers only and Fiona will host over those days including lectures, daily discussions, one on one consultations, all meals fully catered including evening meals in local pubs, daily walks and perhaps even some baking

Please email Fiona for details.
