Stop putting off your writing and join us on our Venice retreat
We know it can be difficult to find the time or the motivation to write with all the stress and distractions of everyday life.
Do you often promise yourself that you will eventually get to that writing project that you have been putting off for years?
Do dream of just taking some time away from all of it so you can finally find the time and support you need to really focus on your writing?
You’re in luck! We’ve had two cancellations so you can make this dream a reality by joining us on our Venice Writing Retreat.
The historic city of Venice has inspired many writers such as Casanova, Voltaire and Byron, Hemingway, Daphne Du Maurier, Donna Leon and Ian McEwan and is the perfect setting for you to find the inspiration you have been looking for.
Away from your day to day responsibilities you will have nothing but time to focus on your writing. Our supportive community and highly experienced but kind facilitators will give the support and motivation you need while helping you develop your writing skills.
As usual, we are running the retreat over two weeks. You are welcome to sign up for one week or two – from 11 to 18 October and/or 19 to 26 October.
This year we added a further week in the countryside on the Istrian peninsula of Croatia. But that retreat is now full. If you hoped to join us for that, you’ll have another chance next year.
Here’s a short video, which gives you an idea of our new Venetian venue:
Please click here for full information, and click here for the schedule of costs. We have tried to be as conservative as we can with costs and I’m sure you’ll agree that, for what is offered, Venice is excellent value.
We offer two meals a day: breakfast and either a slap-up dinner or a help-yourself antipasti lunch.
Ca’ della Corte in Venice is a 16th century Venetian palazzo which has retained the essential flavour of Venice, but has been renovated by its passionate owner, Caterina Pensa. Every air-conditioned bedroom either looks out on its own courtyard, or offers a peek into the neighbourhood.
It is an easy eight-minute walk from the station, five minutes from Frari and its glorious Titians, while a ten-minute stroll will take you either to Campo San Polo – familiar to all previous Venice retreaters – or the even more vibrant Campo Santa Margarita.
But most of all, Ca’ della Corte offers unparalleled opportunities to the writer seeking a serene and inspiring environment.
Please contact Trish if you have any questions or would like to book: firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t delay! We expect these last places to be snapped up soon.
