Writing Retreats Kaslo

From 2010 to 2014, Writing Retreats Kaslo held day camps and week-long retreats for a mix of writers, including fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, mystery and playwrighting.

"Thank you [Holley] for opening up my heart and mind to enable me to see that I can write well...Your inspiration and guidance has been a gift. I'm on a journey which began long ago and now I can see what lies on the horizon." Testimonial from a participating writer.
