La Poterie Retreat & Workshop
The best of "retreat" & "workshop": rigorous group discussion of your manuscript, sessions on writing craft & publishing, ample daily solitude, one-on-one conferences, local excursions, and gourmet meals — all in an inspired setting.
We have scheduled our Summer 2022 retreats! Registration is now open.
Please join Karin Gutman, founder of Spirit of Story, for a memoir-writing workshop from Friday, June 24 through Friday, July 1, 2022.
Please join Kristen Harnisch, NY Times best-selling author, for a fiction-writing workshop from Friday, July 8 through Friday, July 15, 2022.
Despite its proximity to the better-known Loire Valley, le Pays Vallée du Loir—two hours southwest of Paris by train in France's Sarthe region—is a well-kept secret.
The workshop is $4500 per week, including all meals, wine and beverages, seven nights' lodging in a beautiful and comfortable room in the chateau, and local excursions. The rate does not include transportation, meals eaten out, or travel insurance which we recommend purchasing.
