Ireland 2016 Testimonials

Absolutely loved it! A perfect balance of yoga, writing, and touring with a small group of interesting individuals. ~ Shari Good

I knew no-one and took a risk. I came away from the retreat challenged as a writer and most profoundly, I was changed in spirit. Sue, James, and Katie created a safe community of writers out of a diverse group of people from Canada and the US. I formed authentic friendships, wrote about things I never dreamed of writing, and gained the confidence to explore writing at a deeper level. ~ Doris Loewen

I would highly recommend a Literary Adventure Retreat with Inkslingers. Through my experience in Ireland, it was evident the facilitators did extensive research and planning. The places we visited were fascinating, hotel accommodation excellent and the bus tour guide engaging. However, the experience was so much more. We were actually following the footsteps of literary giants such as Yeats, Heaney and O’Donohue and visiting the landmarks that inspired their own writing.
One of the many highlights for me was the experience of being in Lissadell House and listening to Sue Reynolds recite the poem Yeats wrote about this fascinating place he visited often. It was just one of the many moving experiences. Being with like-minded travellers and having such caring facilitators, that included so many personal touches, made this a life-changing experience I will never forget. Thank you to Sue, James and Katie. ~ Clare Bolton

Inkslingers provided me with a writing trip of a lifetime. It has deeply enhanced my knowledge of Ireland, its writers and my own writing. I would highly recommend Inkslingers’ writing trips. Sue and James care so much about their clients…it is all about HEART with them. ~ Kate Marshall Flaherty

Sue and James and Katie are master teachers, encouraging participants to take risks and achieve breakthroughs in their writing. All are warm, encouraging and kick-a… talented! I highly recommend this once in a lifetime trip into creativity, history and adventure. ~ Susan Turk

Looking for an exciting adventure with like-minded people? Want to learn more about literary figures? Interested in feedback on your writing? This is the retreat for you. An amazing group of travelling companions. Writing together quickly builds bonds and trust. The three facilitators are professional, friendly, and available if needed. I came home with a refreshed outlook on life and a renewed passion for writing.
