Save the Date!!  September 20 – 26, 2020

We are excited to announce the first international Writing for Your Life retreat! Led by Tony Jones and Brian Allain, the retreat will include both instruction on the craft and business of writing, and the sights and cuisine of Rome and Florence! Writing assignments associated with Rome and Florence will be included.

We expect registration to open in the near future. Limited seats will be available. Subscribe to our email newsletter for further announcements.

If you are leaving from the US you would depart for Rome on Saturday September 19, and your return flight would depart Rome on Sunday September 27. Transportation to the retreat, and your return home, are not included in the retreat registration, however transportation within the retreat is included. Breakfasts and dinners will be included; lunch will be on your own unless noted otherwise.
