They came and wrote – in the fish house, the old barn, the farmhouse, and on the beach. They wrote about kids who are lonely, who don’t fit in, kids curious, funny, or angry. They wrote all morning, and sometimes again in the afternoon or evening. When they weren’t writing, they were talking about writing, or walking the beach and rocky shore, frolicking in the waves, playing games, and sharing meals.
Then they went away, back to their homes in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Ontario.
‘They’ are the six writers who attended the Seaside Writing Retreat & Workshop this August, run by me and my partner and Red Deer’s children’s book editor, Peter Carver. If what I’ve described sounds like your idea of a great time, or if you know someone who would think so, why not subscribe to my blog so you’re sure to find out right away when we are accepting applications for next year’s retreat/workshop?
