Join our 12-week online Book Development
Story and manuscript development come alive at this acclaimed, professional workshop for authors of fiction and nonfiction. We hold the Paris Writers Retreat twice a year at our private loft in the heart of Paris, in May and September. Develop your book, fine tune your manuscript, and perfect your writing in progress. Writers of all levels attend to generate new material, develop ideas, or shape their stories.
The Paris Writers Retreat is hosted by the Rohm Literary Agency and led by NY Times best-selling author and literary agent Wendy Goldman Rohm. Ms. Rohm's conferences have been held since 2002 worldwide, originally inspired by the series of honorary Masters Teas she presented at Yale University.
At the conference, participating writers are guided through the creation process, fine tuning and perfecting their work--from the seed of an idea to a high-quality draft. The conference includes all sessions for five days and continental breakfast each morning. There is an optional networking soiree and group dinner each evening. (For those who can not attend for the full week, we often offer a weekend workshop that is a condensed version of the full conference. For the full conference schedule, see the Schedule page or write to us. See the Testimonials page for reviews from authors worldwide.)
The conference includes all workshop sessions (see Schedule page), continental breakfast each morning, networking soiree in the evenings, and optional outings and dinners with the attending authors. Writers book their own lodging, but we can help you with that (write to Margaret@RohmLiterary.com).
