Current Retreats

Our 2023 retreats

“O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?”

When the English Romantic poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, wrote that line, he expressed the eternal optimism of the human spirit, that spark of hope that keeps us leaning forward to the next great adventure in our lives. For us, that next adventure was England, homeland of a slew of the world’s greatest writers.

For the first time, we brought Go and Write! to England on an adventure to awaken our creative souls, sweeping from venerable London to the iconic Cotswolds: a perfect combo to be inspired by greatness and reconnect with our literary selves.
