Writers Retreat, February 24-26

The goal of our retreat: provide the time and space for you to explore your creativity.

Find inspiration amongst fellow authors (new and aspiring or veteran and published) in the picturesque town of Gananoque and the Thousand Islands.

Pamper yourself with a winter retreat where you can write, relax, enjoy the beauty of nature in a cozy town atmosphere, and practice self care.

2023 Retreat

The 2023 retreat was a cozy, sold out event with seven participants, wonderful networking (dare we say bonding?), a workshop on how to plot your novel, an afternoon of writing, and five gourmet meals by Cheoff Geoff.

“There were lovely spaces in the house to hide away in and work on my story or to converse with the other writers. Thank you for all your efforts that made the Writers' Retreat the highlight of my winter."

Jenn

"The writers retreat was calming, refreshing, and a whole lot of fun. I would definitely attend another one!"
