Creative Writing Retreats

Writing Retreats in Southern Ontario

Winterfire: A weekend writing retreat in southern Ontario this winter


In this busy world we’re always making things — lists, plans, emails, sandwiches. It takes time to step out of the bustle and create mindfully, carefully and lovingly. This is a retreat for people with stories in their hearts that they want to get down. We’ll gather at a big manor house on a lake — twelve participants and two facilitators — and we’ll write. In silence and in laughter, in circles and all alone, we’ll find just the right words and sentences and images to move our stories out into the world.  Participants may have projects on the go, or may simply arrive with big open hearts and the desire to create.

February 23-25, 2018
Loretto Maryholme, a soulful old manor house on Lake Simcoe
Facilitated by Ailsa and Danette
