Turning Leaves Writer's Retreat
Fri Oct 28, 2011

Get away for three days of intensive writing activities. The weekend is packed with everything you need to get you fired up to write all winter long.

  • workshops with three powerhouse facilitators
  • fireside discussions with award-winning poet and author Barry Dempster about the writing life and the biz
  • a chance to discuss your writing with the facilitators
  • group reading and feedback sessions
  • the energy that comes from writing and chatting with a community of writers
  • private time to write

Writers will enjoy three days that balance creativity sessions, group activities, and dedicated writing time all in a natural lakeside setting with modern conveniences, meals and a private room in the Fireside Inn at Fern Resort.

Gwynn and Ruth create a space that offers you all the things retreat participants have come to expect from a Writescape retreat: inspiration and support; private, personal space and energizing group sessions; comfortable accommodations and excellent food; nature close at hand and cozy fireplaces and comfy chairs. In short, a place to encourage your imagination and time for dedicated focus on your needs as a creative person.

This fall, Writescape has exclusive use of the Fireside Inn at Fern Resort on lovely Lake Couchiching in the Muskokas just under 2 hours from Toronto. This wonderful venue offers our retreat participants private rooms or shared accommodation, a fabulous water-side group space;  lake-view dining in the charming Heritage Dining Room; lakeside boardwalk and area trails; indoor pool, spa and exercise area, and so much more.
