Where are the good writers' retreats and workshops? How can I identify them?

Asking for a friend: can you recommend writers' workshops? I searched through the old questions and the only notable item was the Gotham Writers' Workshop. I'll point him to the online side of their site. I think, though, an in-person retreat or ongoing workshops would be better, for multiple reasons. For a several day retreat, he'd be willing to fly pretty much anywhere, so those don't need to be location-specific.
Can you offer any advice for finding a good group?
Bonus points for: retreats/courses based on The Artist's Way
Courses/groups in the Chicagoland area.
