The Homeric Writers’ Retreat & Workshop invites participants to their very own private odyssey on the island of Ithaca—a retreat focused on riveting one’s writing through an immersive and intimate Homeric journey. This much-anticipated event will take place August 1-7, 2014.
Ithaca 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 – truly a writer’s haven.

Attendees will be thrilled to learn that guest Katherine Sands, well known New York literary agent, will be speaking at this year’s retreat and they will not only have an opportunity to spend quality one-on-one time with her, but will be able to benefit from ideas and tips she learned from a lifetime immersed in the literary world.
Guests will enjoy special excursions, including a guided walk to Homer’s School, dinners, complimentary cocktails by the sea, village sightseeing, traditional dance and festivals. The clear blue seas and lush green valleys and mountains are home to one of the friendliest communities in Greece and the Homeric Writers’ Retreat & Workshop.
