David Rocklin - Start your first book in France with David

David Rocklin - Start your first book in France with David

A week in the company of writers in a stunning ‘belle epoque’ mansion located in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world.

Our group of 8 writers will meet each day in one of the mansion’s many cozy rooms, or poolside, or on a veranda overlooking the sea. There, we’ll do fun and generative exercises, craft talks tailored to the writers’ specific goals and identified areas of focus and development, and we’ll discuss each participant’s individual work in a collaborative, supportive and inclusive setting. Each writer will also get a 1-hour private session. Of course, the day will be filled with ample time to write and reflect in an extraordinary destination-vacation setting.

David Rocklin is the author of the novels The Luminist and Foreward award-winning The Night Language. His new novel, The Electric Love Song Of Fleischl Berger, will be published in May 2024. He is also the author of The Write Formula, a comprehensive craft book offering guidance, inspiration and practical advice on all aspects of fiction writing. David’s Los Angeles – based reading series, Roar Shack, is one of the city’s longest running and is considered an inclusive hub within the L.A. literary community.
