Here's just some of what Write Away Greece alumni have said about the Retreat:
My experience in Greece… has not only re-inspired my writing, but has given me an anchor to draw upon like a well.
Travis K., novelist
I've gotta say this has absolutely been a trip of a lifetime. My face hurts from smiling so much. I feel inspired. Invigorated.
Lisa D., screenwriter
Thank you, to each of you beautiful souls, for sharing your lives and stories this week. I had no idea that I'd take so much away from the last 9 days,
Liz S., writer
Thanks for the energy and inspiration!! What an life-changing week! My notebooks are filling!
Maureen J., travel & non-fiction memoir writer
How grateful I am for the last week and for all I was able to take away from everything we did. Maybe after next year's reunion I'll have the ability to effectively explain how much I appreciate everything you did for us, and especially for me. This last week was something incredibly special, and I am so lucky to have been a part of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Elizabeth O, playwright
I already miss you all, our boisterous laughter, our deep talks, and even the silly jabber. During our week together, you all helped me remember how good life can be, and who I was trying to be before I strayed from my path. I'll be grateful forever, to all of you, for nudging me back on course.
Heather G., novelist
Thank you for everything you all did to put together such a wonderful week together on Paros. The workshop, the talks, the food and social hours all were outstanding.
Katharine R., fiction writer
The teachable moments, the creative laughter and the immense intellectual propensity from the writers in residence along side the visiting writers is a must for any writer. This all being said I was blown away by the well organized dining and travel accommodations that took the usual anxiety away from travel.
Travis K., fiction
I'm back in Chicago (and back at the office, ugh). But I'm working hard on my project and trying to stay on course! Thanks for the inspiration, the friendship and all the wonderful memories.
Kate H., script writer
Thank you once again for making all of our time on Paros so special and memorable. Every detail was obviously carefully planned, and you shepherded us through each delightful meal and activity with the kind of grace that let us blissfully forget all the work that goes into organizing a group (working) holiday. All your tips about Paros, the language, and your knowledge and connections on the island enriched every day, too. Beyond this, it was such a real pleasure to make many new friends, too. I had a fabulous time.
