From $2995
Tuscan Villa

This writing retreat is for writers of all genres and levels of experience, from those who have always wanted to write but never found the time, to others who have a project they’ve started and want to take to the next level.

Whether writing a novel, creative non-fiction, memoir or short stories, writers will benefit from Lisa’s expert advice on all aspects of the creative process. There will be ample time for your own writing and one-on-one consultations with Lisa are encouraged.

For five days, in the luxury of the villa, you will write, read, listen, learn and discuss all aspects of creative writing. This could be discovering your story and harnessing your unique voice and dialogue, through to developing an enthralling plot and cohesive structure with a gripping beginning, surprising middle and satisfying ending.

In addition, you’ll discover ways to manage your inner critic, overcome writers’ block, and techniques to overcome procrastination.
