Workshops, Residencies & Retreats

In the Beautiful Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada

At the Dreamers Writing Farm, we offer writing retreats, self-directed residencies, writing workshops, and general accommodations. During your stay, visit the Secret Garden in the woods, attend a healing writing workshop in the Dreamers Studio, or hang out with our Nigerian dwarf goats, the Brothers Grimm: Gus, Gunther and Griffin, and their new brothers: Harry Potter and Huckleberry Finn.

The Dreamers Writing Farm is located in Hepworth, Ontario, Canada, just minutes from multiple Bruce Trail access points. It’s only 10 minutes from Sauble Beach, one of the longest freshwater beaches in Canada, and 7 minutes from Wiarton, famous for the weather predicting groundhog, Wiarton Willy. The Dreamers Writing Farm is also down the road from a main ATV access point, seconds from an OFSC snowmobile trail, just around the corner from the Sawmill Nordic Centre where you can cross-country ski or snowshoe, and it borders the Northern Dunes Golf Club. There’s no better place for your writing adventures!

Writing to Heal Retreats & Workshops

Fireside Writing Retreat


Over the past several decades, research into writing as a healing practice has shown that writing is good for our mental and physical health. People who routinely “write to heal” experience increased confidence, a sense of calm, and a deeper appreciation for the life they’ve lived.

During this fireside writing retreat, participate in a series of writing prompts designed to explore themes connected to your lived experience.

We run this retreat every June and October at the Dreamers Writing Farm, located in Hepworth, Ontario, Canada.

Online Writing Workshops


Do you want to learn how to reflect inwards and unlock what you keep hidden, even from yourself? Find out how expressive writing leads to deeper self-acceptance and healing. In this workshop, use creative non-fiction and fiction, poetry and journaling, to learn techniques for restorying self, explore approaches to self-reflective writing, review contexts where writing is being used for personal development, and share your writing with the course instructor and fellow participants.

Announcing the Dreamers Writing Farm
Retreats and Workshops in the Beautiful Bruce Peninsula
The Dreamers Writing Farm is now OPEN! We’ve been working on opening a physical location for a long time, and after minor variances to zoning bylaws, a property survey and merging of our lots, lawyers, government officials, entrance permits, building permits, occupancy permits, builders, and building inspectors, it’s finally happened. Talk about dreams coming true!
