Go and Write! Excursion to London, England and the Cotswolds, March 18-28 or April 10-20

23 Jan 2023 10:19 AM | Executive Director (Administrator)

If this is your year to dedicate time and energy to your writing, join professional, award-winning authors Dr. Gerard Collins and Janie Simpson on a small group, 11-day writing retreat in London and the Cotswolds, March 18-28 or April 10-20.

With only eight rooms available, space is very limited on this 11-day retreat, where you can enjoy the blooming warmth of an English spring before the tourist season begins. In London, you’ll stay at the Mad Hatter Hotel near ancient pubs where Dickens, Johnson, Twain, Yeats, Tennyson, and Orwell visited, wrote, and set stories. Then, it’s off to the Cotswolds and the luxurious Abbots Grange manor house, built in 1320 and voted the best B&B in Britain.

This intimate retreat is built for writers of all genres and experience levels, and as writers themselves, Gerard and Janie get it: writers want a thoughtful blend of plenty of alone time for writing as well as literary-focused short tours and group readings and workshops, and that’s how they structure Go and Write! retreats.

Based in New Brunswick, Janie and Gerard have been hosting writing retreats since 2016. Gerard, originally from Newfoundland, has won and been nominated for many awards and has taught university English literature for over two decades – Gerard will conduct workshops and meet with you one-on-one to discuss your writing. Janie, a graduate of the UNB’s English program, is the chief administrator for Go and Write! and is, herself, an award-winning fiction writer and poet.

Costs start at $4,995 CAD. Visit https://goandwrite.ca/london-cotswolds-spring-2023/ for more information and to register.
