Treat Yourself to a Week of Writing in France

I'm thrilled to be running a week long creative writing workshop in the South of France this October and hope you can join us in a beautiful location for a week of writing, talking about writing, more writing, fabulous food and local wines... and more writing.... I can't wait! http://tinyurl.com/63x34hp Please check the link soon if you're interested as places are very limited.

To get you in the mood, I've posted a few photos taken at some of my recent workshops.

You could find a worse place for writing workshops. My dream: to write in an attic room in Italy or the Midi during Summer. Then in winter find a similar attic room to write in Montreal or the Lake District.

Guillaume said...

Oh, and the Midi is a great setting for a crime story. France in general in fact, they know how to make quality noir.

Leigh Russell said...

Sounds like a plan, Guillaume! They all sound like wonderful places in which to write - in fact, anywhere at all would do me!

Guillaume said...

I would love to be there for some creative writing workshop! I could write both in French and English (double the fun!). But I don't know where I'll be in October, but there is a fair chance that I`will be somewhere cooler.

Leigh Russell said...

"cooler"? - talking about the temperature, I trust, Guillaume!

Charles Gramlich said...

That would be so cool, but it's school time unfortunately.

Leigh Russell said...

Not for me, Charles. But wouldn't it have been wonderful to meet in France for a week of writing! One day, perhaps.

woops - how did that happen?

Star said...

Oh I wish...sounds wonderful!

HelenMHunt said...

Looks wonderful!

Jennifer Perry said...

Leigh, sounds like a dream. Of course you will be inspired to give us your next book set in the South of France, right?

Leigh Russell said...

Could well be a 'French connection' in the next book... !

Guillaume said...

Oh course I was referring to the weather!

But I think your next novel should be set partially in France.

Pat said...

If only! Where? The Languedoc used to be my stamping ground.
No book yet. It's been delayed.

Leigh Russell said...

It's a great idea, Guillaume. I'll work on that when I'm there.

Leigh Russell said...

Hi Pat, we'll be near Perpignan. I've posted the link and would love to see you there!

Looks beautiful.

Leigh Russell said...

I just hope enough people come along to make it happen, Star. It realy does look lovely, doesn't it?

Wow, I just came across your blog on Vraie Fiction, as Guillaume has been so gracious to include our blogs in the last posting. I noticed you will be hosting a workshop in southern France in October. I as well will be in southern France, not soon enough in my opinion, however; unfortunately our timing will not coincide. Best luck to you, I look forward to reading your book!

Hi guinea pig - sorry you won't be able to join us in France. Have a wonderful time in France yourself.
