All our overseas travel-writing workshops are currently suspended until further notice due to COVID. :'( 
In the meantime, we’re sinking our teeth into our own backyard, hosting domestic writing retreats from Byron Bay to Alice Springs. We send our warmest well wishes to our language schools, accommodation providers and friends in Bali, Tokyo and Barcelona. Stay safe until we can meet again!
