A Writing Retreat with Danielle Pope, The Story Midwife
Unleash the story you’re meant to write.
This March, leave behind the shades of winter and enter your Spring equinox with a burst of creative energy in beautiful Tofino, B.C. Practice On The Page is your chance to stretch your writing muscles, feel inspired and encourage your creative side to come out to play.
This all-levels retreat offers you a weekend of creative self care, and a safe space to find your voice and nurture the stories your heart has been waiting to tell — all with the gorgeous backdrop of Coastal Bliss Yoga’s studio and the region’s natural surroundings.
Danielle Pope, The Story Midwife, will guide you through a progressive series of activities, writing exercises, prompts and reading opportunities to get your words flowing and deepen your level of self expression. You’ll develop the tools to start a practice, kickstart a project, or breathe life into that book you’ve always been meaning to write.
Come with an idea, or a blank page — whether you dream of starting a blog, working on your next novel, or making space for a weekend of fun, this retreat is your chance for a new level of commitment to your writing practice. Bring along your favourite notebook and pen, and prepare to dive deeply into this journey of creativity.

Danielle Pope, The Story Midwife, is a writer, editor, photographer and writing coach in Victoria, B.C.
She believes everyone has a story to tell, and leads monthly writing workshops to help people find their voice and play with creativity. In addition to the Practice On The Page workshop series and retreats, Danielle was the creator of the Women and Words workshop series, as well as the 30-Day Writing Challenge and the Write Now prompt cards — a deck aimed at stimulating creative inspiration. She was dubbed with her title when one client noted it was as though Danielle was helping to “birth” her story — like a midwife — and the name stuck.
Danielle earned her degree in writing from the University of Victoria, specializing in creative writing, poetry, non-fiction and journalism. She acts as a coach for new and experienced authors, and has been a journalist in Canada for over a decade. Her writing can be found in publications across the country, and through her instagram
When she’s not writing, you can usually find Danielle playing with poetry, acrylic paint,
chickens or mason jars — but not usually at the same time.
