It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you about exciting writers’ workshops in Tuscany, In Vino Veritas. Our 2019 offering is rich: the first session is led by acclaimed author/teacher Alison MacLeod (her novel Unexploded was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize), and the second session is a team-taught workshop featuring Jonathan Levi, author of Septimania and Colombian journalist Marta Orrantia, author of Mañana no te presentes.
Get ready to mark your calendar, here are the dates:
Session I with Alison MacLeod: September 1 – 7, 2019
Session II with Jonathan Levi and Marta Orrantia: September 15 – 21, 2019
In Vino Veritas brings together a small group (limited to a maximum of 15 participants) of international writers who work on memoirs, fiction, and poetry, learning about writing in the morning and wine in the evenings. All is accompanied by exquisite food and conversation.
The backdrop to this exciting week is the Donatella Cinelli Colombini wine estate in Trequanda, south of Florence, not far from Siena and near Montalcino (home to the prize-winning Brunello wine, of which Donatella is also a producer!).
Please do not hesitate to contact me for an electronic brochure or more information. And do spread the word to your friends and all those you think might be interested.
I look forward to welcoming you to a session of In Vino Veritas!
