“I believe now that I can, with work and practice, become published, and I understand how to move forward in my craft. I will definitely attend a Cagibi retreat again, it was the highlight of my year!” —past Cagibi retreat participant

Are you ready to leave your Cagibi?

Are you ready to take a plane and travel? To socialize beyond your computer screen? To workshop and connect in person with other writers?

And are you ready to do all in this in a quaint Provence village in the south of France?

Because we are!

Europe will soon announce that it is reopening its borders to fully vaccinated Americans. So it is with much excitement that we are announcing that the Cagibi Writing Retreat in Provence, originally scheduled for 2020, will take place this coming fall, September 26 – October 3, 2021.

As the French say, Mieux vaut tard que jamais!

At the end of this September join a small group of writers for our first international retreat: a week of dedicated writing time and workshops co-led by Cagibi founding editors in the village of Lourmarin in Provence, France.

This retreat is for writers who want to develop the skills and discipline needed to tell a story, regardless of the form they have chosen to work in. Whether working on a novel, autofiction, memoir, poetry, poetic-memoir, or other creative nonfiction our study sessions and writing practice are training ground for effective, compelling storytelling.

NEW DATES: Sept 26 – October 3 2021


DEADLINE FOR DEPOSIT: May 31, 2021 (All deposits will be refunded if any Covid-related traveling restrictions are reinstated.)

To bring you this retreat we have partnered with Artecom, a Canadian company based in France. Artecom is managing registrations and is there to support you with any logistical questions or needs. In-depth retreat details and registration may be found on Artecom’s website:
