Take the next step in your writing life. This is the Writing Retreat you’ve been dreaming about!
Do you yearn for easy, relaxed stretches of time to write? To light up your Creativity: be on fire for your work? To create a finished manuscript of your poems? Plan, start or finish a novel? A Memoir? A Travel book? A cookbook? A Performance piece? Write your book proposal and query letters?
This destination writing retreat at a mountain lodge in gorgeous Slovenia is the place to get your project energized, on track, or if you’re at your final stage: completed! And get feedback!
This is the get-down-to-it Getaway!!! The best of both: travel and discovery time, and real time to write!
We will set individual goals in our various genres, have luxurious time to work on our projects, alone and together. We'll share our work, listen to and mutually support each other.
We will drop down deeply into our writing life with passion and vigor.
The Slovenia Wrting House includes 12 hours of class, sharing our work in the evenings, and 3 hours of private mentoring with Judyth (2 hours in Slovenia and 1 hour online).
Each afternoon we'll break for an activity in the kitchen to learn about local food production and preparation by picking fruit from heirloom trees, canning preserves, making schnapps or foraging in the forest. The Novaks practice SlowFood by securing the majority of their ingredients from their fields, their neighbors, the nearby forest and famed local trout stream. It will be the freshest food you've ever tasted!
