Paris writing retreat takes place during
October 18th to 24th, 2021.

Follow – literally - in the footsteps of such legends as James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sylvia Beach, Gertrude Stein, George Orwell, Oscar Wilde, even Dan Brown across the boulevards of Paris while learning the art of creative writing through practical workshops and author meetings.


Enjoy hands-on tutoring from published authors and lively literary discussions in the very same places that the 1920s ‘Lost Generation’ frequented for the very same reasons, some of whom ultimately emerged as Nobel Prize winners.


This is the promise of the latest initiative of ‘Ireland Writing Retreat’ as it expands its frontiers into the City of Light, famed for such classic writers as Victor Hugo, Émile Zola, Jules Verne, Marcel Proust, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.

Join with ‘Ireland Writing Retreat’ for its second edition of the one-week long retreat in Paris in October, 2020, a city renown not only for its haute cuisine, fashion and iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower but also its colorful literary legacy and enjoy writing and editing classes in cozy, discreet cafes, restaurants, bookshops, even attractive gardens, where such literary legends once sat and discussed each other’s works-in-progress.
