Is there a story inside you, waiting to get out?

Join Wendy and Cesca on a creative writing retreat in Abruzzo, the heart of Italy.

24 April to 1 May 2022

No crowds, easy access from Rome and its own airport in Pescara.

Editor Wendy ( and published author Cesca Major ( reveal ways that a writing retreat can help nurture your creativity!

Here are Some of the Benefits!

  1. Enjoy a week of writing and relaxation in this spectacular region of Italy. Rich and authentic in its culture and history, Abruzzo will open your eyes to the hidden potential in your writing. Medieval hilltop towns, snow-capped mountains, national parks, sandy beaches and of course, designer shops.
  2. Feel inspired by the breath-taking views as you laze around the swimming pool. There are no interruptions or distractions here. You are free to write as much or as little you want. It’s the perfect place to focus on creating your story.
  3. Interactive morning workshops on creative writing. Advice, tips on how to plan your story, build your characters and develop your plot. Discover how to express thoughts, feelings and emotions in your writing.
  4. A writing retreat brings people together from all walks of life, backgrounds and cultures – a great place to share your writing journey with others.
  5. It gives time to reflect on who you are as a writer, how you can engage with your readers and the message you wish you share through your story. As a result, you’ll get to know yourself better and find your unique voice.
  6. Our workshops include information and advice about how to self-publish. From designing eye-caching covers, formatting to launching your book on different platforms or even producing an audio book.
  7. You will have access to professional guidance and feedback throughout your stay. We offer one-to-one support, providing an unbiased, professional critique of your work to help validate your writing. Help, guidance and motivation are always on hand.
  8. You can take part in live Q & A sessions with published authors. Find out about their writing journey, learn more about the industry and apply their tips to your writing process.
  9. Discover how to share your story with the world. We will demonstrate how to create a successful marketing strategy to promote your book and provide you with the tools you need to reach your readers and share your message with them.
  10. Enjoy the eclectic food and wine of Abruzzo which draws on pastoral, mountain and coastal cuisine. Freshly caught seafood and fish served by the sea while ‘arrosticini’ (meat on skewers) cooked over hot coals is enjoyed al fresco, in the wide outdoors. Served with a glass of Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, of course!

Arrive with a work in progress or just an empty page! This is your chance to remove yourself from your everyday life and tell or finish the story buried inside you! All are welcome!
