EXCLUSIVE WRITERS RETREATS FOR ‘WILD AT HEART’ SCRIBES & FOODIE EXPLORERS
WRITE IN THE WILD HEART OF ITALY, 10-16 May 2020:
A completely unique writing and cultural immersion experience, the Wild Heart of Italy writers retreats have been designed to not only get your writing dreams kickstarted, but to importantly get writers connected to their inner authenticity and creative wildness.
Every morning during our retreat, Hollywood scriptwriter and U.S. television development executive Katiedid Langrock of Write in the Wild will exclusively share her secrets to writing success by helping writers create their own unique and personalised writing process to form a genuine connection with their readers.
The all-inclusive retreat package features a course of five workshops with the ultimate aim of ensuring writers leave the retreat inspired and equipped with the tools for a saleable story or manuscript. It also includes a private one-hour personal feedback session with Katiedid and two additional bonus classes on keeping writing momentum going and successfully pitching your work during the retreat, with plenty of free time to wander around and write in a beautiful and wild Italian mountaintop village in the ‘hidden’ food and wine region of Ciociaria.
PLUS! Every participant receives a FREE digital download of Final Draft screenwriting software [valued at US$249] which is just perfect for mapping out the direction of your novel or screenplay. Hooray!
Katiedid will take retreat participants through a step-by-step process throughout the retreat workshops with the ultimate aim of ensuring writers leave the retreat inspired and equipped with the tools for a saleable story or manuscript. Focusing on:
> structuring emotionally connective and wildly successful stories
> creating characters that drive your stories and connect with your readers on an emotional level
> bringing emotional truth into your stories through sensory stimulation (and banishing writer’s fatigue forever!)
> holding space in your most important scenes and breathing life into your stories
Staying in a beautifully-restored 1,000 year old Benedictine monastery, a key feature of the Write in the Wild retreats are several sensory writing and cultural immersion tour experiences provided to participants as part of their retreat packages. This includes a half-day trip exploring stunning medieval frescoes with a private and guided art history tour and a day trip to the farthest corner of Ciociaria for a unique writing immersion experience in the Wild Heart of Italy at the 18th century villa where English novelist DH Lawrence completed “The Lost Girl” in 1919.
The Write in the Wild Heart of Italy retreats have been designed specifically to coach writers working on their novels or screenplays to swerve around writer’s block and to unleash their stories with potency.
