Write in South West France

French house party
Do you have a week spare at the end of May/beginning of June that you’d like to fill with writing time? I’ve just heard that the rather wonderful French House Party (a stylish, 200-year-old Carcassonne farmhouse) has a couple of rooms left on both writing weeks and it’d be a shame if they were to stay empty. If you can get yourself either to Toulouse or Carcassonne airports a luxurious, relaxed and creative week awaits.
I’m tempted myself especially as this is part of France that I’ve always wanted to visit. Lonely Planet describes the fortified town of Carcassonne appearing as though it has come straight from a children’s book.
Sadly, the dates just don’t work for me…

Here are the details :

29 May – 3 June : tutored writing week
(6 days – 5 nights)

Daily writing workshops will expand the imagination using writing games and exercises that rely on play, memory and a sense of adventure. Reading as well as writing, talking, thinking and offering feedback – our focus will be to limber up, stretch your writing, be that fiction, poetry, memoir or non fiction work. Explore your writing potential in comfortable, welcoming surroundings, all food and drink included, plus swimming pool and tennis court. The Canal du Midi is nearby

5 June – 10 June : getting fired up workshop; one to ones and solo writing time
(6 days – 5 nights)

Take time away to work on a particular writing project, be that a novel, memoir, collection of poetry or short stories.
