Deep Writing Retreat: A Five-Day, In-Person Writing Retreat

September 12th to 17th, 2024

at Stowel Lake Farm on Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada

Includes all meals, accommodation, daily writing workshops, and more.

 

Are you longing for dedicated time and space to work on your writing? 

Come to a Gulf Island and create!

This retreat will offer writers time and space to work on their chosen writing project in an inspiring and supportive setting. Writers will be encouraged to dive deeply and joyfully into their creative process.

Daily writing sessions will take place in the mornings and some afternoons and will include helpful lessons (on writing craft, story development, cultivating a meaningful writer’s life, etc.) and lots of time to write.

In the spirit of creating a safe, encouraging environment for writers to deepen their process and make progress on their individual projects, works-in-progress will not be shared or critiqued in a group setting. One evening may be devoted to author readings, but participation will be optional.

The intention of this retreat is to provide a nurturing atmosphere for dedicated writers who are:

  • ready to refine their connection to the creative process 
  • open to having creative conversations with other writers
  •  longing for a break from their usual routine
  • wishing for a breakthrough in their writing process

Writing Retreats in Costa Rica

We all crave inspiration, once in a while; the time to dream, the space to think, the energy to pour into a creative project. We need to recharge, to reassert belief in ourselves and to re-imagine how we see ourselves. We need to laugh, to learn new skills, to be alone when we choose to, to be part of a community when the mood takes us and to reconnect with the natural world. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect place to do all this than in our beautiful Costa Rica!
