Current Retreats

Kingsbrae, September 24 – October 1, 2021

Kingsbrae, St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick

We’re so pleased that the kind folks at award-winning Kingsbrae International Residence for Artists (KIRA) have asked us to return to offer a week-long writing retreat at their facility in St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick, this fall.



We were set to visit Scotland in September 2020, beginning our journey at our private Lunga castle before heading to Edinburgh, and then the pandemic hit. So instead, as a group, we decided to try again in exactly one year from the original date – September 2021, and finally, to September 2022.
Go and Write! Scotland 2022 is rescheduled and we can’t wait.

It’s more important than ever to take the time to write, to chronicle, daydream, and learn, in the easy company of other like-minded souls. We only have a couple of spots left open on this retreat, and we hope you’ll join us.

Ireland, September 29 – October 17, 2022

We’re happy to announce our newest retreat, an eighteen-day trip to Ireland. This is the ultimate Go and Write! experience; essentially, it’s multiple writing retreats rolled into one. You’ll spend one week at a castle in Dublin, three nights in culture-stuffed Galway, and cap things off with another week on one of the magical Aran Islands off the Irish west coast.
