St. Peter's College 2016 Summer Writing Getaways

"Simply put, St. Pete's is where writing lives in Western Canada. It is one of those very few, very precious places in the literary community where writers go to find what is next. I have been there as a student, as a writer, and as a teacher, and always I walk mindfully--through the halls, along the paths, and across the page--in the word and in the world. What is found there is a home for the heart, for the imagination, and for the spirit." Ryan Land
