This is the last chance to sign up for "Writing the Senses in Deep France," my workshop in Auvillar, sponsored by the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Christophe Gardner, a chef who has owned two successful French restaurants, will offer an afternoon lesson on cooking French, and he will also give a photography lesson. Christophe is a writer and photographer for Le Depeche du Mici, the newspaper of Southwest France. He exhibits his professional portraits, and has offered to demonstrate portrait-taking skills.
The workshop itself is centered in poetry, but we have several professional fiction writers who have signed on as well. Everything is poetry in "Deep France," where there are few tourists, where the food is always fresh and fabulous, the wine is cheap and velvety, no preservatives. The villagers live to be old.
We have room for 8 writers--I now have 7. Writers can bring partners or spouses, and their fee is less expensive than those who sign on for the workshop. The gites or vacation homes where we house our writers are posh; the Brune gite has a pool and a hot tub.
If you are interested in learning more, take a look at the VCCA website: http://www.vcca.com/kallet.html/ You can write to me for more info: email@example.com. I can help you negotiate 11th hour discounts. But do it this week! Allons-y! Enrich your life and your work in the healing atmosphere of one of the "100 Most Beautiful Villages in France."
