Sanctuary Sundays – a once a month one day retreat in the Uxbridge/Port Perry area

If you feel like you need to carve out a space from your “normal” life to get some writing done, consider a writer’s sanctuary day of creativity, community, and quiet.

The morning will be spent doing a series of writing exercises to lubricate the machinery and get the creative writer in you feeling more relaxed, focused and perhaps even a little experimental.

After the lunch (included) there will be a silent afternoon to work on your own, on a computer or by hand, as you choose, on whatever project is preoccupying you as a writer these days. (If you don’t have a laptop you will be provided with a computer and your word file can be emailed to you at home at the end of the day.)

Uplands is a peaceful rural location, so if you want to get out for a walk and think, that is also possible. The afternoons are your time to work in silent communion with other writers, feeding off the combined creative energy in the space.

Writing is over at 5:00 for those who need to get home, but if you wish to stay, there will be an opportunity to sit a while longer, to share some of what you’ve been working on and to debrief, discuss issues of craft, etc.

You can attend one or more Sanctuary days, as you choose. Space is limited to 6 writers each day.

Dates for 2008: April 27, May 25, June 29, September 28, October 26, November 30, December 28

In the summer of 2013 I was invited to do a TEDtalk on “Shining the light on our Changing Communities”. I talked about the therapeutic writing program I do with incarcerated women. You can view the talk here.
