Award-winning Newfoundland author Gerard Collins, who now lives in New Brunswick, and Jane Simpson, also a New Brunswicker, offer creative writing retreats for those who find inspiration in travel. On these retreats, Gerard focuses on your writing, with multiple workshops, feedback on your work, and one-on-one discussions about your writing. Janie is involved with planning and running things behind the scenes, both before and during the retreats.

Together, Gerard and Janie work to find fabulous accommodations, time and space to write, and opportunities to experience local culture, everywhere they go.
