For nearly thirty years, the Saskatchewan Writers and Artists Retreats (previously known as Colonies) have served thousands of Saskatchewan and Canadian writers and artists by providing a quiet refuge where creative people can come together and practise their craft. This program of the Saskatchewan Writers Guild provides uninterrupted working time along with opportunities for thought-provoking exchange of ideas after working hours and at mealtimes. Individual retreats make the program more flexible in repsonse to the needs of writers and artists.
The group and individual retreats are not teaching situations, but places where practicing writers and artists are expected to work independently.
