Workshops, Residencies & Retreats
In the Beautiful Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
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.
