Writing retreats for the wandering soul
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. Jane is involved with planning and running things behind the scenes, both before and during the retreats.

Besides offering retreats in Atlantic Canada, Go and Write! has visited Ireland, Scotland, and Italy, and we’re heading back to Scotland and Ireland in 2022. Together, Gerard and Jane work to give you fabulous accommodations, time and space to write, and opportunities to experience local culture.
