UCLA Writers’ Program Instructors Plan Roman Retreat

World Wide Web— Two UCLA Writers’ Program instructors, Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Eve LaSalle Caram are planning an intimate writers’ retreat in Rome for October, 2010.

The excitement grows. The two have rented a town home near the Trevi fountain in Rome and are inviting writers to join them for a casual week of writing and promotion seminars and tons of Eternal City inspiration. Rome resident Jo Linsdell, a writer and founder of PROMODay, the free online conference for writers, will join them to present on the ever-important marketing aspects of the publishing industry. oks for writers (www.howtodoitfrugally.com). The pair will tailor seminars to the needs of those who participate.

If participants are interested, Howard-Johnson will lead a tour of nearby Etruscan sites.

  1. You are so dear to do this! We are so excited about this. The pictures at http://www.budurl.com/RomanRetreat don’t begin to do it justice. I did something like this once before–in Florence. It was small and leisurely and one of the best writing experiences I ever had.

    Again, thank you! Hope your subscribers and visitors enjoy it, too!
