Combine luxurious accommodations, famed New Brunswick fall foliage, and dedicated writing time on this 5-day retreat to Saint Andrews by-the-Sea. Join Dr. Gerard Collins, an award-winning Newfoundland author and experienced university and writing educator, for this autumn literary getaway. Gerard will give two creative writing workshops and host individual meetings with all participants, where the focus is on you and your craft, and where Gerard will provide detailed feedback on your writing. There will be group readings as well as opportunities for grand conversation and inspiration: a thoughtful balance of time spent in the company of other writers and time alone dedicated to your own writing. Your retreat also includes 5 nights at the gorgeous Rossmount Inn, gourmet meals prepared by a multi-award-winning chef, as well as all taxes and gratuities. Woodland walking trails surround the inn and there are countless nooks and crannies, both inside and out, which offer inspiration and privacy for your writing. Autumn is the perfect time to rededicate yourself to your writing, and this retreat offers an opportunity to work directly with Gerard, an award-winning author, IMPAC Dublin nominee, and university educator and creative writing mentor. All genres and writing levels welcome. Cost is $1,499 CAD per person. Register by September 24, 2017. If you are flying into the Saint John, NB airport, we'll be happy to help you arrange transportation from there to Saint Andrews.
