July 23-27, 2018
I’m excited to reveal the next version of my annual jaunt to the city of light, Penning in Paris! Join moi for five days exploring the City of Light through led writing workshops July 23-27.
Each day will include a leisurely breakfast followed by morning writing workshops with most afternoons free for additional writing. Afternoons or evenings will include outings such as yoga in Luxembourg Gardens, savory tea time at Ladurée, jaunts to favorite English bookstores, cruise on the Seine, and meditation in Paris’ oldest church.
Picture yourself writing in cafés where Hemingway and de Beauvoir wrote, sharing your literary dreams, and deepening your commitment to a writing project. In our workshops you’ll learn writing tools, tips to find your voice, how to create a book outline, how to create powerful openings, ways to structure your prose, the path to publication, and more.
There will be daily unscheduled space for exploring the city on your own by tiptoeing through the Tuileries, window shopping along the Champs Élysées, visiting Mona Lisa at the Louvre (or a favorite Monet at Musée d’Orsay), and sipping a cup of café au lait at a sidewalk café.
This adventure is for experienced or aspiring writers longing to connect with their creative spark and explore an inspiring city with a like-hearted group.
