The WRITERS RETREAT WORKSHOP (WRW) was founded in 1987 by Gary and Gail Provost to provide an intimate, intensive, personalized residential program for serious writers, with the goal of offering as much instruction, current nuts and bolts information, writing and editing time, and 1-1 feedback as conceivably possible, all within peaceful surroundings and with a whole lot of heart.


Gary's breakthrough 23-unit video course: home-study program for aspiring and intermediate novelists or writers of narrative nonfiction, who are passionate about learning to improve, develop, and complete their works-in-progress for publication.


So, have you a novel in mind that you want desperately to write? Does the process of pulling it all together feel overwhelming? Are you in the dark about how to actually control the process rather than the other way around?

Is your work-in-progress taking eons to develop? To complete?

Do you wish you knew how to apply Gary's fictional techniques to the memoir you're writing, or the true life drama or true crime story you want so very much to share?

The VIDEO NOVEL WORKSHOP may be just what the doctor ordered! Here, Gary takes you by the hand through the entire process of CRAFTING your book, step-by-entertaining-step. Focusing on the STORY.

It's easy for you to concentrate on your work in the comfort of your own home. And you absolutely can go through the course at your own pace! Gary's warm teaching style makes the learning fun, and best of all, he makes each unit easy to absorb.

Now, "out there" on the internet you may find pirated excerpts of Gary's course material.
