We’re taking Go and Write! to England on a springtime adventure to awaken our creative souls. Join New Brunswick authors Dr. Gerard Collins and Janie Simpson from March 18-28 or April 10-20, 2023 for an intimate writing retreat that sweeps you from venerable London to the iconic Cotswolds, a perfect combo to be inspired by greatness and reconnect with your literary self.
With only eight rooms available, space is limited on this 11-day retreat, where you can enjoy the blooming warmth of an English spring before the tourist season begins. In London, we’ll stay at the Mad Hatter Hotel near ancient pubs where Dickens, Johnson, Twain, Yeats, Tennyson, and Orwell visited, wrote, and set stories. Then, we’re off to the Cotswolds and the luxurious Abbots Grange manor house, built in 1320 and voted the best B&B in Britain.
Through the centuries, the Cotswolds region has attracted writers such as Oscar Wilde, J.R.R. Tolkien, William Shakespeare, and Jane Austen, and it still inspires. To experience its unassuming beauty at a quiet time will afford us the opportunity to
enjoy it as a writer should.
Gerard and Janie have been hosting writing retreats since 2016. Gerard is an award-winning author and university professor who will conduct workshops and offer direct feedback on your writing; Janie is the chief administrator for Go and
Write! and is, herself, an award-winning author.
