Retreat Details

Join us in the open air museum of Florence for a writing retreat which feeds your appetite as well as your interests.  Write new lines amid old stones while absorbing the Renaissance spirit and satisfying your craving for all things Italy.  From perusing the markets to strolling across Ponte Vecchio, visiting the Uffizi, the Bargello, daydreaming in the Boboli Gardens, Florence is a life experience not to be missed.

In the midst of this setting, we will spend six days together writing, reading, sharing, laughing, eating, drinking, and then writing some more.  Nestled in our private accommodation, we invite you to bring curiosity and wonder where together we'll weave stories and poems and maybe even songs from the magic of our Tuscan days and nights.

The retreat begins on Sunday, March 20th and ends Friday, March 25th.
