Opening the Creative Stream

Pantelleria, Italy

April 29 - May 5, 2018  

There is nothing like nurturing seclusion to open the creative stream.  In May 2018 we will travel to a speck of an Italian island so far south Tunisia can be seen on a clear day.  Known as the “black pearl of the Mediterranean," this rocky land of pumice and passito, calderas, capers and secluded coves is a well-kept secret island escape.     

We will stay at a local tenuta or estate, in the dome-shaped characteristic houses of the island called dammusi.  There you'll experience an airy, otherworldly getaway where your writing will be as infused as you are with the island’s richness.  There will be opportunities to explore, snorkel, hike and bathe in the island’s luxurious mineral mud baths in moonlight.  And of course, the stargazing is superb.

Combined with morning yoga, guided meditation, writing prompts, readings and feedback, the author in you will flourish in this sensuous experience.  Add to that the connection that is built within the group of participants and you will be transformed from the time you spend with Wide Open Writing in Pantelleria.
