Photos from The Left Bank Writers Retreat events hosted by Darla Worden

Eight writers spend a week immersed in new experiences in the magical setting of Paris’s Left Bank. Part writers workshop, part tour of Paris, The Left Bank Writers Retreat is for anyone who would like to break out of a writing rut and build momentum in their work.

Hosted by Hemingway expert and Francophile Darla Worden, the Left Bank Writers Retreat with its signature mix of Hemingway-centric one-on-one writing instruction and immersive travel experience of literary haunts promises the opportunity to improve writing skills and find inspiration in history while enjoying a culture-filled, week-long Parisian adventure with like-minded literary enthusiasts. Writers at all levels find inspiration and motivation in the salon-style writing experience, creating work that for some former attendees has led to published books and award-winning poetry.

A sample itinerary of the daily activities can be seen here. Writers arrange their own lodging and transportation to Paris.
