Introducing The Homeric Writers' Retreat & Workshop On The Greek Isle Of Ithaca

August 1-7, 2014

Ithaca is a writer’s haven.

It remains unspoiled by the modern world. Even in the height of summer you can find a secluded beach or a rustic corner to contemplate your thoughts. On Ithaca you'll discover the island’s rich culture and the reason why it holds such a special place in the hearts of those who have visited its shores.
