May 11 - 16 Write on the French River

A Creative Writing Retreat at The Lodge at Pine Cove

Join us on the banks of the historic French River, where The Lodge at Pine Cove’s dramatic setting will draw out your creative voice and refresh your keyboard-weary fingers. This five-day retreat is a chance to hone your fiction or non-fiction skills with three of Canada’s craftiest writers.

Oakland Ross
Toronto Star feature writer, short– and non-fiction writing 

“It's through the process of writing that you learn what it is you think and feel, and what it is that you have to say."
Susan Scott
Non-fiction editor at The New Quarterly, memoirs 

“When we’re entrusted with people’s stories, our task is to shelter them, not distort them for our own ends.”

Russell Smith
The Globe & Mail columnist, fiction writing 

“And as for other people’s secrets – the stories that are
‘not mine to tell’ – of course they are mine to tell. All stories are mine. The whole world’s mine.”

Bonus: Behind the Bedroom Door – Our instructors will discuss how they handle writing sex scenes. Nicola Ross will lead this engaging and titillating panel discussion.
