Left Bank Writers Retreat in Paris Announces Summer 2019 Dates for...
Predicted to be one of 9 Travel Destinations that will be huge in 2019 by Pure Wow, Paris, as the popular lifestyle website says, is always a good idea and its a great idea for writers who are ready to improve their skills and immerse themselves in a small-group writing workshop and literary travel experience that recharges and inspires the mind and soul this June on the Left Bank Writers Retreat.
The retreat, set to celebrate its 10th anniversary, is led by Darla Worden, an author and the editor in chief of Mountain Living magazine. Darla, who has been personally inspired by the works of Hemingway for decades, recently did a reading as part of a Hemingway Wyoming festival of her upcoming book The Dignity of the Iceberg: One Womans Wyoming-to-Paris Search for Hemingway, about her experience following in the famous authors footsteps across two continents to create the Left Bank Writers Retreat.
Writers of the Left Bank Writers Retreat will also follow Hemingways historical tracks, sipping wine, writing and discussing art, literature and life in the cafes he frequented during his time in Paris in the 1920s where he wrote The Sun Also Rises and Men Without Women and that later served as the subject of his memoir A Moveable Feast. Other inspiring activities on the retreat include a boat cruise to the Eiffel Tower, a tour of Montmartre, visits to the Musée dOrsay and Musée de lOrangerie with stops at historic booksellers and daily cocktail hours.
