Sanctuary Sundays with Author Sue Reynolds

My personal sanctuary on retreat
My private gazebo work station

Author, Sue Reynolds identifies with writers’ needs to regenerate their skills in a safe and quiet atmosphere. Sanctuary Sundays at her country home give new meaning to the word refuge.

From beginners to advanced level writers, a day with Sue at her country retreat is a peaceful environment for concentrating on new or existing projects. Sue, an experienced facilitator, and writing teacher, guides attendees on morning exercises in a large-windowed room overlooking woods and water.

Ontario delivers spectacular September days, and my day at the retreat was just that. I elected to spend 2 hours of private writing time in a zippered mesh gazebo on a grassy meadow beside the house.

Blue Jays squabbled at the bird feeder, adding to the hum of a late summer afternoon. Cloistered in a gazebo-tent, perfectly appointed with a single table and chair, I dedicated a focused effort that often eludes me at home. The time was a gift.

Other writers settled on the dock beside the pond, strolled the paths and trails, or nestled into cozy nooks with desks and plug-ins. There is only one rule for private time: silence. No one interrupts anyone else. Imagine that, my writer friends.

At a late-day gathering, participants shared their prose and poetry, uplifting on so many levels. A break-through on a difficult concept in my writing I’d avoided for a long time felt satisfying. This is an ongoing program with Sue Reynolds. I recommend it as a boost to further your writing experience.
