This is a self-guided retreat is open to participants at any stage of their writing career. The time is yours to structure as you please. The group may wish to organize readings or social gatherings and is welcome to do so, bearing in mind that some writers come to write only and may choose to maintain their solitude by declining involvement in group activities.
Strawberry Creek Lodge is a spacious log building on the edge of a tranquil valley, about a half hour’s drive west of Leduc. It’s a natural setting for hiking, bird watching, and stargazing. We will provide a map on registration. Visit Strawberry Creek Lodge’s website for more information and photos.
Registration includes four nights’ accommodation in your own room (with a desk) and all meals from Wednesday supper through Sunday lunch. All participants must be members of the Writers’ Guild of Alberta. You may become a member following registration if you are not a current member.
The retreat begins Wednesday, May 6. Check in anytime after 3:00 PM. Supper is served at 6:00 PM. Try to arrive in time for supper—it’s worth it! The retreat wraps up after lunch on Sunday, May 10.
Because of the unique nature of Strawberry Creek Lodge, not all rooms are the same. Rooms are assigned through a draw on the first day of the retreat. We do not guarantee room selection.
