Welcome to Firefly

We offer cozy and joyful creative writing workshops, coaching and retreats in Toronto, Ontario and through snail mail to anywhere in the world. Explore our site through the menu above, subscribe to our newsletter, or get to know us with this 3-minute video.


If you’re struggling to make writing more central in your life, you’ve come to the right place.

We get that struggle. We love that struggle. And we want you to write. To get started, check out our writing prompt videos. Your next step is to connect to us in person (our favourite way) through our writing workshops and writing retreats. These are mostly in and around Toronto, Ontario, but we also have a subscription service for writers if you’re further afield. Wherever you are, if you know you’re ready to dive in deep, our creative writing coaches are waiting to hear from you.

Whatever you do — keep writing. One word and sentence and story at a time, we build the world we want to live in.

Believing in you already,
~ Chris, Bree, Britt, Saroo, Jenna, Emma, Sophia and Ailsa
