Flex your writing muscle in Greece in August

Lovely Ithaca, Source: http://hwrw.blogspot.se/

A fellow writer asked me if I could help spread the word about a writer’s retreat (the Homeric Writers’ Retreat) that I think would be of interest to my expat readers who are in Europe since the airfare wouldn’t be as expensive as it would be for my North American readers.

I met Chuck Sambuchino from Writer’s Digest back in 2008 at the Women’s Fiction Festival in Matera, Italy. Chuck and author Jessica Bell will be leading a new writer’s retreat on the island of Ithaca in Greece 2-8 August. Here’s the website: http://hwrw.blogspot.com/.

Retreat attendees will receive instruction in perfecting pitch, writing a novel synopsis, getting the perfect query letter, comprehensive critique of WIP’s (work in progress) first 40 pages, etc.

It looks like this will be a pretty interesting event. I wish I could attend but I will be in the US that week. If any of you decide to go, I expect a full update on what it was like! 🙂

  1. Oh, wow, Kim! Pretty tempting…
    Like you, I’ll be in the US during that time, but I’ll be curious to read the follow-up, too, and maybe I’ll have the chance to go in the future. Although those beaches do NOT look very conducive to writing…. or maybe I’m just far too easily distracted. : )
