Our writing retreats
The aim of our writing retreats is to provide writers with everything they need to fullfill their project, such as :
- a time and a place dedicated to your writing ;
- meetings and sharing moments with other writers ;
- an inspiring atmosphere ;
- a coaching by our magazine editor, who is fluent in English and a qualified teacher.
Even if you decide to stay elsewhere, you are still more than welcome to take part in the daily meetings.
The house where our writing retreats take place is located near Cluny, in the middle of South Burgundy vineyards. It's a family house, with 5 rooms, 2 bathrooms, one large kitchen, one living room and a garden.
Our coach, Elsa Jousseau, will stay with you during the retreat and will lead the daily meetings. After two years as a member of a writing group in London where she developed her critical skills, she graduated in Literature and creative writing in 2016 at Université de Cergy-Pontoise. She's also fiction editor for our literary magazine, which she founded and launched in 2017.
The House is located in Saint-Gengoux-de-Scissé (71). We can pick up from your station or your car sharing arrival point, just let us know.
