Varenna ItalyItaly, in Other Words, Memoir Writing Retreat returns to its sumptuous location, Villa Monastero, in the tiny town of Varenna at Lake Como for its 2016 session from September 18th to 24th.

Workshop leader Kathryn Abajian says, “Picture yourself writing amid botanical gardens, lakeside with a cappuccino, or in your room with a view of peaceful Lake Como. Plan to enjoy thoughtful instruction, honest and supportive discussion and insightful excursions.”

“Linda and I are eager to acquaint you with our current plans for a meaningful writing and cultural experience and give you ideas of other places to go in Italy to bookend the retreat, if you desire. Both of us spent extended time in Italy in 2015 and can attest to the health benefits of the food, wine, visual stimulation and contact with Italians!”

Kathryn expects the retreat to fill before mid-April, so check it out soon if you’re interested.
