Peele Island Book House Writing Retreat on Peelee Island in October. This week-long retreat, ‘Genre Writing: How Story Transcends Genre’, has been led by novelist/screenwriter Chuck Wendig.
Plus the Artscape Gibraltar Point located on Toronto Island hosts two types of artist residencies, self-directed and programmed, in a former school that is home to Toronto Artscape’s short-term studio/overnight accommodations. Here, writers, artists and creatives work in a self-directed fashion. Artscape is a not-for-profit urban development organization.
