Event: Roman Writers Retreat

This week is the Roman Writers Retreat organised by Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Eve Caram. The event takes place in Rome, Italy.

You can see all the details about this event at http://www.howtodoitfrugally.com/roman_retreat.htm including the lovely villa where most of the seminars will takes place.

"The  Roman Writers' Retreat  was imagined as a casual writers' conference where authors could follow their dreams  by two UCLA Writers' Program instructors Eve LaSalle Caram and Carolyn Howard-Johnson on their cross-town foray to Eve's Novel I class on campus. (The drive in traffic is a long one!). Eve had just taken a Villa in Italy and it seemed as if doing something similar and sharing expenses with other writers would be a great way to explore and be inspired by Rome, the city of dreams". 

Seminars will cover a variety of topics.
