Writeaways - Writing Getaways and Workshops
Sometimes writers just need to get away.
We created Writeaways to help you do that. We provide writing instruction designed to help writers at all levels, 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. Programs in France, North Carolina, and coming soon to Tuscany!
For any writer who has been in a writer’s 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.
