Devotion to Writing Italy Writing Retreat

sometimes we just need to get away and have time and space to commune with our writing work. I know I need this. That’s why I’m curating this retreat in the Italian countryside. Here’s an opportunity to nurture and feed your creativity. 

What’s expected: Nothing. You’ll get 6 days to relax, write, walk, nap, eat local food, visit nearby towns, in other words, to do whatever you want to do. Each evening you’ll be fed dinner and can gather with the other retreaters. This is meant to be a casual, creative week. 

What’s included: 6 dinners, private room in Italian villa, transfer to/from local train station. 

Not included: airfare, transportation to local train station, breakfast and lunch, excursions. 

October 20-26. Cost: $1999.00
