The Inner Author: Writing with the Inner Me

Presented by

Dr. Ronna Jevne & Hal Martin
Prairie Wind Writing Centre

Whether you write the occasional poem, pour your heart out onto the pages of a journal or have a project in mind or underway, The Inner Author is the writing getaway you may be looking for.

Come with curiosity, an open heart and an open mind. Leave with increased focus, motivation and skill. Watch your creatively blossom as you:

  • recognize your unique gift and purpose as a writer
  • banish your barriers
  • honour your writing style and process
  • reap the rewards of risking writing

Enjoy a retreat setting, a touch of pampering and an exchange of ideas about writing with others in an encouraging atmosphere. Bring that unfinished manuscript or that developing idea.

On day one, get to know your inner author. On day two, enjoy uninterrupted time to devote to your writing, with or without guidance and/or feedback. A one day version of The Inner author is also available.

Date, time, place: TBA

Please indicate your interest by filling out the registration form at the bottom of this page.

Fee: includes board and room, materials and participants will receive a copy of Living Life as a Writer by Ronna Jevne.


“There is only one point to writing. It allows you to do the impossible. … writing makes sorrow endurable, evil intelligible, justice desirable and love possible.”

Roger Rosenblatt in Kayak Morning


“If in doubt, write.”

Phil Cousineau in The Art of Pilgrimage.


“What does your heart say

all by itself?

with no obligation to others,

no guilt

no thought of “what will they think?”

Just you, and the rest

of the vast starry universe;

Not even God.

just you alone.

What does your heart say?”

Richard Wehrman in Poems for Heartwork
