Are you a writer looking for motivation, trying to find your muse, and up for a good adventure?
Then why not join us for another Writing Workshop Adventure. Encampment is an overnight event in which you’ll get to challenge yourself both physically and mentally. During this overnight writing workshop, you and your guides (Steven Rolls and Paul MacDougall of moosebait.com) will be dropped into the heart of the Fortress of Louisbourg, an 18th century French fortress, where you will camp on site and be taken on an adventure of writing and exploration.
This year marks the Fortress of Louisbourg’s 300th anniversary and we’re inviting writers of all levels and styles, with a good pair of sneakers and no fear of the dark, to spend a night dedicated to writing and thinking about writing. You can try poetry, drama, fiction, non-fiction, whatever interests you; and you can do it without worrying about the kids, partners, work, or who’s going to cook dinner, because we’ll do that for you too. We’ll explore the fortress and surrounding shoreline while exploring writing and finding inspiration in the history, drama, and conflict of the fortress.
So if you want to set aside a time devoted to getting words onto paper, don’t mind roughing it, enjoy the company of like-minded people, and want to be part of something different, join us for a genuine Cape Breton adventure on September 7.
“Just wanted to thank you again for a great day on the mountain…it was very inspirational being there, surrounded by people who love to write and create like me. It was well run, I enjoyed all aspects, doing the exercises and hearing what everyone came up with and of course, the food was exceptional…”
