Diamond Willow Artisan Retreat,

Turner Valley, Alberta,

Do you love language? Do you want to turn your prose into poetry?
Then come join us around the fire for a day of wordsmithing with top Canadian western poet, Doris Daley, in the beautiful Turner Valley, the heartland of Alberta!

“One of my truths is this: words matter. If everything is awesome, nothing is awesome. You can’t be very unique or quite unique. In my line of writing, finding a new metaphor or a pleasing rhyme is better than settling for a cliché or an exhausted slant rhyme. To use the right words in a gracious manner, that is always the goal.” - Doris Daley


Workshops/Retreats/Programs.. (whatever you want to call them)

We could all use a little imagination. Get out of your head, out of your skin, out of your ego, out of the front door into the world and discover a new heightened sense of creative awareness. Become wildly receptive to the cues of nature & the muses. 
You may find there’s an abundance of support, guidance & collaboration to be had. You may find there’s an infinite row of creative springboards from which to jump into your work. 
Here’s the catch, if you don’t look it’s not there.

All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know. Ernest Hemmingway

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us Ralph Waldo Emerson


I come here to find myself, it's so easy to get lost in the world.
