Storytelling Sojourn with Jamie Ford


oin us for a week of creative splendor with seven fellow writers at a spectacular château in the Pays de la Loire region of France.

Each morning we’ll gather for three hours in one of the château’s cozy rooms, or poolside, to workshop beginning chapters, opening scenes, and examine the types of contracts we make with readers on page one.

We’ll discuss writing vs. storytelling, ways of immersing the reader, and how to bank and spend emotional currency. Each participant will also have a 1-hour private session.

All genres are welcome In this generative workshop.
