Christina Baker Kline & Paula McLain Retreat

View from deck

Join Christina and Paula for this unique opportunity for a creative deep dive in the coastal village of Arcachon, a historical gem south of Bordeaux.

Every day our group of sixteen women writers will gather for a three-hour workshop in one of our two luxurious villas.

The classes will be a combination of generative writing exercises and small-group critiques in a close-knit & nurturing environment. 

We’ll vary the groups each day to keep the energy fresh, and each student will meet with either Christina and Paula for a one-hour private session. All genres are welcome.
