Summer Poetry Retreat in Umbria, Italy with Kim Addonizio


Join poet Kim Addonizio for a two week writer's retreat in Umbria, Italy. Kim has published 13 books--poetry collections, novels, and books on poetry--which have been translated into multiple languages. She has received fellowships from the NEA and Guggenheim Foundation, two Pushcart Prizes, and was a National Book Award Finalist for her collection Tell Me. For more, visit http://www.kimaddonizio.com.

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 http://www.laromita.org. Those interested should feel free to email Kim at addoniziokim@gmail.com with any questions.
