Descanso--an intentional rest or pause to catch one's breath before continuing the journey.

Enjoy these beautiful views of Saint Savant, Southern France

Dear Friends,

In September 2020 Descanso Creatives will be gathering in the South of France in the beautiful Cognac Region and near the legendary vineyards of Bordeaux.  We will spend an unforgettable week writing in the centuries old small village of Saint Sauvant, surrounded by ancient vineyards and living in the architecturally significant boutique hotel Design Hotel Des Francs Garcons.

Full information on the flow of the week, which will include excursions to vineyards and historic distilleries along with our traditional times of Cellosong and opportunities for deep writing and creativity, will be available soon. However, we are already receiving “Save Me A Place!” emails from writers and artists from previous Descanso Retreats! If you are interested in further details or want to be placed on our “Save Me A Place!” list, please contact me by clicking on the email links below.

We are eagerly anticipating another transformational Descanso Writers’ Retreat experience and hope you will join us in the South of France September 2020!

Looking forward to being in touch,

Chick Morgan, Ph.D.
