Take life-changing workshops in breathtaking places.

Write in the Heart of Tuscany!


  In the medieval Tuscan hill town of Castiglion Fiorentino
at the beautiful Residence Le Santucce, join Cary Tennis for nine days of intensive writing workshops and coaching on craft, vision and sustaining a healthy practice. Refresh your creative spirit and make intuitive leaps; focus your pitch and refine your narrative arc or poetic strategy. Make friends, eat great food and enjoy Tuscany's seductive charms.

Mornings and most afternoons are devoted to workshops and individual conferences. Use the rest of the time for writing, exploring the town, or visiting Lake Trasimeno, Arezzo, Perugia, or Assisi. Take the nearby train (a 15-minute walk) directly to Florence or Rome for the day. Rent a car to visit Cortona, Siena and other famous destinations. Take a private tour of local wineries if you wish.

Castiglion Fiorentino is a walled medieval hill town that overlooks the Val di Chio and the Val di Chiana, locally famous for its annual Medieval Festival, and Palio (horse race).

Standard registration covers nine nights of lodging, breakfast included, daily writing workshops led by Cary, and individual and group conferences on strategies for creative growth and insight. Lunch and dinner can be found in authentic local shops and wonderful restaurants mere steps away, at prices more affordable than those in more congested tourist destinations. Residence Le Santucce, where we suggest you stay, and where the workshop takes place, is a superbly renovated historic building which has won the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the second year in a row. Its large, clean, beautifully designed and decorated rooms offer spectacular views and ample serenity.
