About Smart House Retreats
Get Away and Write
Taking place in a lovely Victorian home two blocks from the St. Lawrence River in Brockville, this is a retreat for a small, committed collection of creative individuals who love writing and the writing process. Work with one of the editors of publishing company Smart House Books to create and polish your work. With both group workshops and one-on-one mentoring, this is an enriching creative experience. A chance to have your work critiqued, shared, developed, and nurtured, and if you complete your work by the end of the retreat, there is also the option of having it professionally edited for a reasonable fee. You will also have time to write independently and explore the lovely city of Brockville. 

This retreat takes your writing progress and level of experience into account and places you accordingly.

Dates begin in mid-July and go throughout the summer. Each retreat takes place over two weekends, with two weeks in between to work on your project independently.

​Partial grants available for struggling writers.
