How do you become the writer you've always wanted to be?

It takes a villa.

Sometimes you just need to get away. We created Writeaways - writing getaways - to help you find the time you need to write, far from the demands of your daily life.

Rediscover the writer in yourself as you listen to the lyrical lilt of Italian, taste pasta prepared by a traditional Tuscan chef, and explore the ancient towns of Italy.

During this weeklong writing retreat in Italy, you'll immerse yourself in writing, cooking and adventure in an ancient medieval villa in the heart of Tuscany.Includes writing consultations and daily writing classes, cooking class and excursions, and all meals, wine and after-dinner drinks. Located in the Chianti region at Villa Cini, between Siena and Arezzo, an hour from Florence.


Featured Writers Include:

Mimi Herman and John Yewell


Poetry, Fiction, Creative nonfiction, Playwriting, Screenwriting, Children's literature

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.
