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

Writeaways

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.

 

Writeaway in France

I first met Mimi and John at their writing retreat at Chateau du Pin. While I had a very interesting story I’d thought about writing for years, I did not think of myself as a writer. Thanks to their thoughtful guidance, I finally began writing that story–and I’m still at it. John and Mimi made me believe I could do it, and gave me the tools I needed. I can’t thank them enough.

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 felt like it was the right time.

Now's the time.  

We have Writeaway writing retreats in France and Italy, with more on the way.
