A day of writing activities at “Glentula” on Lake Seymour with Gwynn Scheltema. If you can’t get away for a full weekend retreat, try this one-day getaway filled with inspirational writing activities to get you writing. We’ll draw inspiration from the woods, the wandering garden paths, the lake and streams as well as the energy of writing in a community of other writers. The day will be a mix of group-led writing exercises, situation-themed writing prompts and time to write and reflect. Gwynn will be available at several points in the day to answer any questions you may have about your personal writing project.
Time: 10am – 4pm – writing activities;
5pm – 8pm – optional campfire reading and discussion
Venue: At “Glentula” on the shores of lovely Lake Seymour
101 Morningside Drive, Trent River, ON
