New Year Resolution writing week

There's going to be a creative writing week at Glencanisp Lodge, the first for almost two years, in January. It's the week after Hogmanay (from Sunday 6 to Friday 11 January) - the perfect week to put your new year's writing resolutions into action.

The Lodge is under new management (still Assynt Foundation, but new staff and board of directors) and this makes creative use of the lodge affordable again.The setting is spectacular and the lodge is lovely, with rooms ranging from comfortable to luxurious. If you need a week to get away from the internet, the mobile phone, work, family or whatever else it is that stops you writing, come to Assynt. The many writing weeks we have held at the lodge since the community bought it have all proved very productive for the people who came.

Back in 2005, the community of Assynt bought a big chunk of Scotland's land, including the iconic mountain of Suilven, which presides over the lodge. There's no more inspiring place to write, plus it's a great feeling to support a local community charity whilst indulging in a pleasurable and creative week.

If you'd like to come, but can't for some reason, do let me know why. The new arrangements are trial and feedback would be welcome. Hopefully there'll be at least one other creative writing week later in 2013.
