Writing retreat in the Loire Valley and Tuscany. Find yourself in France and Italy.


Sometimes writers just need to get away. 



That's why we've created Writeaways - writing getaways - to help you find the time you need to write. We provide writing instruction, fabulous food and company in beautiful places, and a safe place for you to take a writing vacation with your muse, and maybe a good friend. 

For any writer who has been in a writers' workshop, where fellow writers critique your work with the idea that “we know how to fix it,” this is not that workshop. In Writeaways, you'll get the support you've always needed as a writer - and be able to share that support with others.

Great experience. Great adventure. I HIGHLY recommend this writing workshop.

Writeaways work for any level of writer. Maybe you've been writing for years, and could use some extra inspiration and support. Perhaps you used to write in your younger days, and miss that part of yourself.  Or maybe you've always wanted to write, but never found the right time.

Now's the time.

Join us on September 2-11, 2016 for our first Writeaway by the River or September 25-October 2, 2016 for our fourth Writeaway in France in a 15th century chateau.

We've held Writeaways at a 500-year old Tuscan villa, in the lovely waterfront town of Beaufort, NC, on Topsail Island and along the North Carolina Outer Banks.

Discover more about our adventures at Blogaways.
