Here's your chance to write in France, in a little jewel of a village. (Did you see Chocolat with Johnny Depp? The village of Auvillar looks just like the movie.) In fact, Auvillar is one of the "most beautiful villages in France." The people are really kind and sweet, the food is outstanding, and the wine--well, the wine!
Not only will you come away with new poems or stories, but you will also have a chance to take free French cooking lessons with Chef Christophe Gardner, and to study photography with him as well. He's the town photographer, and works for Le Depeche du Midi, the newspaper of the region. He's an absolute pro.
