This four-day Writers’ Retreat will be centred in the historic Royal Scots Club, a beautiful building where I am privileged to be a member. The club is in a prime position close to the Royal Mile and the centre of Edinburgh, with private gardens opposite. There is the option of staying at the Club, which is very reasonably priced for Edinburgh, or to find accommodation nearby. My American colleague, J. Michelle Newman will be working with me, and she and I have been doing extensive research into the literary links to this amazing city, inspiration to so many famous writers, including Sir Walter Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Kenneth Grahame, Robert Louis Stevenson, Ian Rankin, Alexander McCall Smith, and latterly J.K. Rowling, who wrote her Harry Potter books in a café in Edinburgh. I can’t wait to share this glorious city with you, and encourage your own inspirational writing!
