Ibiza, a Spanish Island on the Mediterranean Sea, is a truly magical place to write. We spend our retreats up in the north mountains, at the rural Can Buho Inn, and take half-day trips to sights and beaches around the island where you can sit and write in front of some of the most exquisite views in the world. A small, intimate group of 6-10 writers gather to be inspired, write, and workshop. Meals and excursions are taken care of so writers can concentrate on their creativity and craft. 

The next Ibiza Retreat will be held November 2018 and is entitled "Finish Your Effing Book" retreat. This is a retreat focused on completing a project - whether it's your book or some other project, this five day retreat on the magical Island will give you the space, time and inspiration to get to the finish line. Minimal instruction, but maximum support, Francesca will be available to talk through your work 1-1 as you need it. In addition there will be an optional workshop, once a day, on on writer's work (if they are so inclined). Manuscripts of 15 pages will be due to the group by September 9th if you will be participating in workshop. 

In addition to the program, we are so fortunate to have two experts joining us for their own sessions on the island. 

Cost of the program includes:

A five night stay at the charming and beautiful Can Buho Inn - a 1500's Spanish Farm House turned Inn up in the spectacular Ibiza Mountains. (See pix below)

Three healthy, homemade meals a day. 

Welcome wine

One optional yoga class offered by Crystal McCreary

One session on the Business of Writing by Agent Kim Perel from Irene Goodman Agency

 "The writing workshop with Frannie is what you would expect and more. She and the island give you space, quiet, calm and perspective that is hard to find in your day to day life." - Stephany

    "Frannie is a patient and insightful guide who provides the structure and inspiration to encourage reflection and creativity. She reminded me that writing is about seeking insight and sharing truth, and she provided a beautiful space to pursue these. This trip has inspired me to keep going with the writing I've begun. What a gift!" - Kimberley

 "Can Buho's owners Justine and Marlon are so welcoming and take care of everything - from delicious meals three times a day to rides to beaches and attraction. For a busy Mom, not having to pay attention to meals or planning gave me the opportunity to let someone take care of me so that I could take care of my art."
