Italy Writers Conference

-April 15-22, 2024 -

Join us in the breathtaking Tuscany countryside for a writers conference experience you'll never forget.

We'll spend 8-days, 7-nights in a beautiful historic villa, complete with the best food you'll experience! Tickets include up to 18-meals and a tour to Montepulciano for wine and cheese-tasting, a crowd favorite from last year! On our last day, we'll head to Florence for a day of on-your-own sightseeing. This event sold out quickly last year and we'd love for you to join us in one of the most gorgeous countries in the world.

Cancellations & Refunds

If you need to cancel, we will open your spot to our waiting list. Your registration can be transferred but that transaction will be handled between you and the person taking your spot.

Because we have kept the conference costs as low as possible, all payments will be considered non-refundable unless our Italian host cancels and we receive the refund for the event.

In that instance, we will refund your payment less the deposit.

We recommend travel insurance and/or travel cancellation insurance. Pay attention to COVID restrictions as they can change.
