Everything but airfare is included in the cost of the workshop: room, amazing food and wine, trips to surrounding hill towns and literary sites, and creative feedback. Once you are at La Romita, a former monastery in the Umbrian hills, there’s nothing to do but read, write, and enjoy. More information is available at Those interested should feel free to email Kim at with any questions.
