Summer Writing Retreats in Italy

venue-home2Ready to get that criminally overlooked pilot off the ground? Tired of lamenting that ‘dark night of the soul’ you can’t crack? You’ll never finish/polish that script doing the same things you’ve been doing in the same places you’ve been doing them with the same tools you’ve always used. It’s time to take your writing on an Italian odyssey.

Join us in the charming hill town of Orvieto for your choice of a two-week, or a one-week advanced program with Ben Acker & Ben Blacker, the hilarious masterminds behind the Thrilling Adventure Hour. Michelangelo Screenwriting’s residential program will get you away from the distractions of life and going on a new project or rewrite in a relaxed and supportive setting. In our community of writers, you’ll get intensive daily feedback from our teachers and your peers. New media platforms and formats will be an integral part of the conversation. Choose from among the gardens of our convent and the cafes of Orvieto for your favorite spot to write.
