Writers’ Refuge: Writing Workshop on Pelee Island

Oct 12-16, 2022

5 days | Canada | Literary Adventures

Do you have a writing project that you feel you need to do but just aren't sure how to begin?

Do you begin writing and then... well, a million other things get in the way? Do you wish to discover/re-discover your own voice and write your own story! Then join us this fall for The Writers’ Refuge.

Nestled on beautiful Pelee Island, this “connectivity-free,” five night retreat provides the perfect setting to help you write – away from noise, criticism and competing distractions. Whether you are a writer just beginning to discover your voice or in the midst of a project needing time and space to move forward, this retreat is for you.

Morning workshop sessions will help identify and strengthen your unique style while honing your writing skills. Afternoons will adopt a “bootcamp” model -- writing alone/together in concentrated blocks of time. Whether you are hoping to create a memoir, a work of nonfiction, a novel, a short story or even poetry, this retreat will instill in you a sense of confidence. After the retreat, a one-on-one follow-up session will provide you with individual feedback on your work, to ensure that you are staying on track.

Are you ready? Are you ready to accept the challenge to pick up your pen and put your words down on the page?
