Writers' Retreat, February 24-26

Write up a storm this winter!

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

You deserve the time and space to explore your creativity. 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.
