A Getaway for Poets, Fiction and Nonfiction Writers

Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Dylan Thomas’s birth by immersing yourself in the literary landscape immortalized in his poetry and prose. This writing retreat will feature supportive workshops, socializing with local writers and excursions along the beautifully rugged coastline.

"Attending was a big deal for me since I'd never been to a writing retreat before. It turned out to be fabulous—the atmosphere was perfect for writing and Peter was an excellent teacher. His lessons were unique and helped uncork my writing, getting me to think and use my writing time wisely. I highly enjoyed the trip and would recommend a Murphy Writing retreat to absolutely anybody, whether a novice or pro." ~ Michelle, Huntsville, TX

"The Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start the year off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the hotel’s friendly atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
