Go and Write! with Dr. Gerard Collins and Jane Simpson, professional, award-winning authors based in New Brunswick, Canada. Our participants include emerging and published writers of all genres—poets, dramatists, children’s authors, memoirists, and more—as well as their friends, family and spouses.

Every retreat, whether we’re at a historic estate in Atlantic Canada, a castle in Scotland or Ireland, a manor house in England, or a villa in Italy, delivers a unique, life-changing experience and creates new friendships. We hope you’ll join us on our next adventure.

 


The mix of travel and writing made this a truly special trip… Even if it is a cliché, this was the experience of a lifetime. ~ M.I.
