Providence Bay Writers' Camp

Registration is now open for this unique one-week writing retreat (for grown-ups!) on Manitoulin Island, Lake Huron.

Bring your fiction up to the next level in morning workshops with Gail Anderson-Dargatz and enjoy everything the island has to offer later in the day.

After your camp week is over, you’ll have continued access to the writers’ camp forum until the end of February 2017, where you can meet on-line and discuss writing with your friends from the camp. You’ll also have access to the general salon area on Gail’s forum, where writers from across Canada, the US and around the world chat about craft, the writing life, publishing and promotion. Gail is there most week days to offer advice and links.

For more, please click on the details to your right. For a view into this intimate workshop setting, check out this blog from Wynn Anne, who participated in the 2015 camp.
