Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
A small-group salon-style writing workshop offered every summer in the heart of Paris, France, the Left Bank Writers Retreat is a holiday dream gift for writers. Now, the popular six-day retreat, which includes exquisite neighborhood café lunches and sightseeing as well as personalized instruction, is offering a special $1,799 rate for the 2014 Left Bank Writers Retreat (June 15 – 20, 2014) for registration made by January 1. The holiday discount provides $200 off the regular price of the retreat, which includes morning writing sessions, coaching and one-on-one time with the instructor for a maximum of eight writers, as well as lunch each day, admission to museums and area sights, an excursion to Montmartre, a picnic on the banks of the Seine and a literary tour visiting many of the sites featured in the Woody Allen movie "Midnight in Paris."
"I’ve heard some wonderful stories at the retreat from women and men who have received the retreat as a gift," says Left Bank Writers Retreat founder Darla Worden. "A holiday gift of our in-Paris writing workshop is kind of an ultimate show of support for the writer in your life – even if that writer is yourself. And it is definitely a gift that keeps on giving. Writers return home from the retreat with newfound writing inspiration from their Paris experiences."
Now in its sixth year, the Left Bank Writers Retreat takes place on the historic Île Saint-Louis in the heart of Paris, France. The retreat welcomes fiction and memoir writers, poets and playwrights. A place in the 2014 Left Bank Writers Retreat can be held with a $500 deposit – and a deposit made by January 1, 2014, secures a place for the retreat at the discounted holiday gift-giving price. After January 1, the price of the retreat returns to the regular rate of $1,999, which includes the six-day workshop. Attendees arrange their own flights and lodging.
"Sure, writers always appreciate tried-and-true ‘writer gifts’ like books, ereaders and special pens," says Worden, "but for not much more than the price of a top-of-the-line Montblanc pen, you can give a gift of amazing firsthand memories of favorite Paris haunts of the likes of Hemingway and Fitzgerald – as well as the hands-on writing instruction and inspiration that will fuel a writer’s work into the future."
Left Bank Writers Retreat facilitator and host Darla Worden is a writer and public relations professional who lives in Denver, Colo., and spends a month each year in Paris. Worden, recently interviewed in Insider Perks about her love of travel, has written widely for magazines and authored several books.

The 2014 Left Bank Writers Retreat is slated for June 15 – 20 in Paris, France.
