Step away from the pressures of life and into bright blue bliss. Good cheer, good pens and a bloody good feeling of the mind relaxing and time expanding – and writing getting done.

Join a small group of friendly folk for the next Seaside Writing adventure full of writing exercises, dedicated project writing time, thoughtful feedback, certain laughter and delicious food.

Day Retreat to Orpheus Island

More info

Orpheus Island is an exclusive tropical locale accessible by boat from Townsville that only sets off a few weekends a year.

Come away on this rare occasion to rest into a writing rhythm and relax with like-minded folk for a unique Seaside Writing retreat.

Spend the day focused on your writing and opening up your mind with the water, in conversation, and putting pen to paper in a beautiful natural environment.

Partake in a number of fun, structured, writing activities to unearth new dimensions for your creativity.

And utilise the open writing sessions to dedicate yourself to the writing project you’d like to tackle.

Explore the sea by snorkeling and swimming or venture through the island on foot with allocated downtime.

Enjoy a nourishing coffee, lunch and afternoon tea. Be excited by a welcome pack of goodies too.

Come as a business owner aiming to tackle communications work like blogs, email templates and websites; come as a creative writer diving into your character, setting and plot; or simply come with an open heart and free spirit, guided by what the sea and the universe gifts you on the day.

Big thanks to Alicia at North Queensland Tours for assisting in pulling this together.
