Writing Holidays

Have you ever been on a writing holiday, or thought of going on one? Variously referred to as writing holidays, writing breaks, writing getaways, or even writing safaris, they all have a common theme: an opportunity to work on your writing while someone else worries about the boring stuff like cooking and cleaning.

Writing Holiday

Here’s a small sample of what’s currently on offer around the net:

  • The Arvon Foundation offer intensive residential courses led by tutors across a host of writing disciplines.
  • The French House Experience provide a variety of ‘arty’ pursuits, including writing, packaged as part of a luxurious pampering experience.
  • Want something a bit quieter? Try a Limnisa retreat in Greece.
  • Beyond Boundaries Travel help you to combine your writing holiday with a tour of a beautiful part of the world.
  • If you want something more group-focused, Absorbing Writing offer a ten-person getaway in Sardinia.
  • For some, good food is an essential part of the creative process – as it is for Write in Languedoc.

Have you been on one of these, or any others? Please share the good, bad and ugly of your experiences with the rest of us.
