Cross into Creativity at our Tuscany Writers Retreat


The rolling fertile hills of Tuscany have inspired writers and artists since time immemorial. We will stay in stunning fully-restored Tuscan farmhouse perched atop a hill with sweeping views of the verdant Tuscan countryside and its vineyards, silver-green olive groves, sentinel cypress trees and all the glories of the Casentino Valley — one of the most captivating parts of seductive Tuscany and near the medieval town of Poppi, named one of the most beautiful villages of Italy.


Writers will reside in the finely-restored and well-appointed Il Gelso Farmhouse, a sprawling red-roofed Tuscan gem with finely-designed interior and expansive, well-tended grounds and private swimming pool with spectacular sweeping views of the Tuscan hills. Writers have their own private rooms with en suite bath and mornings commence with breakfast prepared by our on-site private chef with some time for writing, relaxing or soaking in the views (or the pool) before our morning Round Table Writing Discussions led by experienced facilitators. The morning sessions are informative and inquiring discussions delving into important elements of the writers craft. You will learn more a bout why you write, what you’re writing, and how you can tell your stories to the very best of your ability. We will enjoy a chef-prepared lunch al fresco on the panoramic patio then free time in the afternoon for writing, relaxing, swimming or exploring the lush Tuscan countryside. We reconvene in the early evenings for the Round Table Writing Workshops, a time for sharing and workshopping new writings from inspiring writing prompts or from works-in-progress in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment. We will then enjoy delectable dinners prepared by our chef using locally sourced products served al fresco for convivial communal meals in the garden.


You will be a part of a curated creative community including aspiring, established and emerging writers all seeking to tell their stories the best way possible with guidance from experienced facilitators. New faces will quickly merge into new friends and a staunch support group. While you share a lot about yourself and the stories you’re striving to tell, you will also learn and benefit from the creative camaraderie and learn to look at you’re writing and the world in new and fresh way.


There’s a shape to all good stories that involves change and the arc of the Tuscany Writing Retreat is that when you arrive to our Tuscan corner of paradise, you’ll begin to leave the world behind. You’ll have the time, the community, support and encouragement to focus on yourself and writing. As the week progresses, you’ll hone your writing skills, generate new ideas, get feedback and support, become part of a new creative community and learn to embrace being a writer. You’ll embark on an immersive and inspiring journey that puts you on that path to discovering your ideal creative process and empowers you your story to the very best of your ability and to make writing an integral part of your life.


Just like great writing lives in the margins, the Tuscany Writers Retreat goes beyond the text and much of the magic is in the margins: the intangible moments that happen when you are free without inhibitions to be, to engage in your surroundings, to share your stories and be generous with yourself, open to others and your newfound tribe. You will hone your writing skills, generate new ideas, get feedback and support, and learn to embrace being a writer. It is an intensely personal experience, and there will be laughter, tears, and joy during this transformational retreat that helps you become the best writer you can be.
