pelee island book house writing Residencies


6-Day Writing Residency

Price includes accommodations and 3 buffet styled meals per day. Ferry cost and booking times are at your own discretion. A self-directed residency is a low cost alternative if you just need time away to focus on your writing. There will be no instructors or workshops, but you will have plenty of time to write, read, walk, and explore the Island, while in a community of writers. Your shared bedroom can have 2-3 people of your choice, or you can request a roommate of the same sex. If you desire to have your own space, then apply early, as the single rooms are usually booked first. There are two single occupancy twin beds available, and up to three single occupancy King beds.

14-day Writing Residency

Starting in 2018, there will be the option to combine sessions 3 and 4 into one two-week writing residency. Price includes accommodations and 3 buffet styled meals per day. Ferry cost and booking times are at your own discretion.
