A Summer Get(write)away

Need a Writing Retreat? Lilipad is again hosting Rick Taylor’s Annual Write by the Lake: Jumpstart & Develop your short stories, novels, poetry, travel and memoir writing from Sun July 25 – Thurs July 29, 2010. It is held at a quiet lake in Val des Monts, Quebec, only 30 minutes from downtown Ottawa.

The workshop will meet from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and then take a 2 hour break which will include a tasty lunch and perhaps a canoe, kayak or swim in one of the most picturesque lakes imaginable. We will begin again at 1 p.m. and work until 3 p.m. Friday afternoon concludes with a potluck celebration.

For More info. Tip: This is year 6 I think, and I hear they tend to fill fast.

There’s a listing for Artist retreats online and Shaw Guides for worldwide places too. They look like ads. I don’t know if they’re vetted.

What do you want in a writing camp? New spark, seminars, intense editing by someone, time away as a working vacation without distractions, or space with a writer you admire as a mentoring time. It depends on what you need to write one notch up, I suppose.

  1. Nice location…backwoods near the city.
    Both combined would be cool.

  2. yes, not quite in the middle of no where so far as commute but a world apart should one need to get away from daily routines. one can stay over or come there daily.
