Feedback form is now closed.

There are wonderful programs for Anglophone writers in France, particularly in Paris, with several originating from the Boston area. In this session, we’ll hear about the lure of French travel for writers and the benefits of immersing in a writing project in Paris from some writers who've done just that: novelist Lauren Grodstein, author most recently of Our Short History; journalist and author of 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go Marcia DeSanctis; and frequent writer-in-Paris Stacey Resnikoff. And if this session sparks your own esprit d'aventure, they'll share some resources, too! Moderated by writer/comedian Kelly MacFarland.
