Sue Reynolds has been hosting and facilitating single day writing sanctuaries in her own home for several years.  In the mornings, participants write from prompts Sue provides, and have the opportunity to read their freshly created poetry and prose in a supportive environment.  After lunch, writers enjoy a few hours of silent writing time. Writers at all stages and levels are enriched and delighted by these  day-long immersions and often are surprised to find they’ve surpassed their own expectations.


These three-day residential retreats came into being after it became clear that when the day with Sue was over, no one wanted to go home.

They take place on a quiet piece of land beside a slow-moving river, two hours north-east of Toronto. Guests have the choice of modest private or semi-private accommodations, and enjoy local, mostly organic catered cuisine.

The retreat begins on Thursday evening for a light meal and introductory writing “heat”. After a full-fare breakfast, prompts are given to launch writers into their craft. Afternoons are spent in silence – writing, walking, swimming, canoeing, resting.

There is optional restorative yoga Friday and Saturday evenings.
