Slip away for a week… in Paris

(In business 11 years, with many returnees)

A one-week, small-group seminar where we write in cafes. In English. Eat. Write. Jazz. Fun. Beginners welcome.

Ideal for the independent traveler who wants just a little structure to corral the creative process.

We are together for morning writing, seven meals, and a jazz night, but there is time to write or explore Paris. The writing focus is creative nonfiction, memoir, and fiction.

Sessions begin in September 2021.
