1st Annual Friends of Vocamus Press Writers’ Getaway

by jeremylukehill

Here’s your chance to get away with other writers for a weekend to focus on your work.

It’s not a workshop. It’s not a seminar. It’s a weekend writing detaway at a cottage on beautiful Dominion Bay, Manitoulin Island, with your meals provided, ample quiet time to write during the day, and then a campfire with a few drinks and some chat in the evening.

The getaway runs from Friday, October 21 to Sunday October 23. It includes accommodation on the Friday and Saturday nights, meals from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch, and transportation to and from Dominion Bay. We’ll pick you up around 9:00 AM Friday morning and drop you home sometime late on Sunday evening.

Dominion Bay is on the south shore of Manitoulin Island, with a huge sand beach, plenty of room to hike and explore, a tennis court and lawn bowling green, and lots of quite places to write inside and out. The cottages have full bathrooms, kitchens for making snacks, and outlets for your laptops. They’re heated too (it will be October after all).

The cost for the weekend is $400 per person. If you’re interested, contact jeremylukehill@vocamus.net or 226-500-7301.
