Drink the Wild Air
Come join us at the WordsWorth Winter Retreat! March 1-3 at Camp Chief Hector. Why there, you ask? “Nature has no outline. Imagination has” William Blake
March 1-3 we’re heading to the mountains for another Creative Writing Re-treat and of
course, we hope you’ll be there! But why do we keep bringing our writing to the outdoors?William Carlos Williams said things close to the nose aren’t proper subjects. Not all writing can be direct self-expression. Looking inward can keep poets and writ-ers from looking outward. And so we’re taking you outdoors this time to Camp Chief Hector to partner with the outdoor staff to notice evocative new images and to have fresh adventure. And then we’ll create time to take these new images and experiences
...and collaborate them with language. So even if you already have a relationship with
the natural world, this one will be new.The locale of the happening always colours the
happening, and often, to a degree, shapes it novelist Elizabeth Brown observed.
So join us and DRINK THE WILD AIR March 1 – 3, 2013 at Camp Chief Hector
YMCA in Kananaskis, Alberta. Thaw your brainfreeze with warm words and we hope
you will find an unexpected connection between the outdoors and words.

We will be outdoors, indoors writing, up late writing under the stars, sleeping
late -ish. There will be campfire, music, parlour games, Exquisite Corpse Games... the fun will never end.
Oh, yes it will. On Sunday just after lunch. But in true Words-worth fashion, we will pack the fun in. We’re even offering a bus out from Calgary on the Friday night.
