Sometimes writers need to get away. 


That's why we've created Writeaways - writing getaways - to help you find the time to write. We provide writing instruction, fabulous food and company in beautiful places, and a safe place for you to take a writing vacation with your muse, and maybe a good friend. 

For any writer who has been in a writers' workshop, where fellow writers critique your work with the idea that “we know how to fix it,” this is not that workshop. In Writeaways, you'll get the support you've always needed as a writer - and be able to share that support with others.

Writeaways work for any level of writer. Maybe you've been writing for years, and could use some extra inspiration and support. Perhaps you used to write in your younger days, and miss that part of yourself.  Or maybe you've always wanted to write, but never found the right time.

Now's the time.

John and Mimi have been collaborating as writers, teachers and editors for over a decade. As teachers they'll work with you to figure out your own writing goals. As editors, they'll help you cut through the clutter of words, distilling them to say exactly what you want to say, the way you want to say it. 

In their Writeaways writing workshops in France, Italy and North Carolina, they help writers of all levels deepen their skills within a community of fellow writers.
