All writers dream of getting a block of time for themselves to write. The Villa provides the perfect opportunity. Over the years, we’ve created touchstones within the weekend’s framework that provide optional opportunities to connect with other writers to share work-in-progress and experience.  Rooms are single and private, so there is not excuse not to write.

“All of us can see ourselves in Leveille’s characters. These are stories that speak to the complicated bonds we have with siblings and parents, who they were and who they are now and how we learn the truth of what we took for granted before.” – The Daily Gleaner
