Cross into Creativity at the Naxos, Greece Writers Retreat

The Write Away Naxos Writing Retreat offers an inspiring and invigorating Writers Retreat in the heart of the Cyclades on the enchanting island of Naxos, Greece, the largest and most fertile of the Cycladic Islands. Being surrounded by stunning views over the Aegean Sea, olive groves, vineyards, and classic Cycladic architecture and history will soothe your senses and summon your creative spirit.

Naxos is famous for its legendary history, its unique culture, its long sandy beaches and crystal clear waters and the rich history and great beauty of the island have inspired writers and artists throughout the ages, making it the ideal place to disconnect from your everyday life and reconnect with your muse.

The Cyclades - and Naxos in particular - have captivated writers and artists throughout the ages and Naxos has played a prominent role since the early days of Ancient Greece. There are ancient archaeological sites, like the Temple of Demeter and the monolithic marble doorway, the Portara, the remains of the ancient Temple to Apollo, that still stands sentinel over the island. The ancient Greek myths tell of Zeus and Dionysus being brought up on Naxos and Dionysus using his power to make the land fertile. These myths live on as Naxos today is still filled with vineyards producing fine wines and olive groves and farms making some of the finest produce and food in Greece.

Writers will reside in private rooms in a charming boutique hotel near the ink-blue Aegean Sea and will get inspired by stimulating Round Table Writing Discussions and Workshops, convivial group dinners savoring delectable local cuisine as well as evening social gatherings and still also have free time available for additional inspiring activities.

The Write Away Naxos Writers Retreat, the stimulating beauty of the island, and the inspiring daily Writing Round Table Workshops all combine to make Naxos an idyllic place to unleash your creative potential.
