I cannot think of a better way to spend a Saturday than to sit around a table with amazing, hilarious, creative people and write things. Except maybe doing it in this room.
While the last Urban Writing Retreat took place in a very pretty location, it couldn't hold a candle to the amazingness that was 401 Richmond Street West. You're probably familiar with it -- it's a downtown arts-and-culture hub that's home to tons of galleries, festivals, social innovators... and this sweet Nest & Story workshop.
We spent the first half of the day doing some guided writing exercises, followed by a catered lunch from Delica Kitchen featuring, among other delicious things, homemade Oreo cookies. In the afternoon, we stretched out on the couch and in the hallways and around the table and wrote.
This was the last in-person workshop of the season! Now it's time for our usual summer hiatus before Birds of a Feather starts up again in the fall. To get notified when registration opens, make sure you're on the Nest & Story mailing list.
Hope we can write together soon! I'm looking forward to starting my MFA program this summer and spending lots of time in the sunshine, but I can't wait to be back around the table with you in the fall.
