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! 🙂
