Writing Retreats and Getaways


I have an amazing lake house in Upstate, New York that’s perfect for a writer to escape. Stay tuned for future Writing Retreats with some top talent!



Rocaberti Writers Retreats are held in fabulous locations in Europe. It’s like a vacation that takes your writing to the next level!

They’ve only just announced the July 2018 retreat, so the website isn’t even up yet, but it will have a similar programme to the April 2018 one, where Pamela Wallace, who won the Academy Award for WITNESS, will be a mentor.

In July 2018, Diane Drake will be a mentor. Diane wrote ONLY YOU, starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Marisa Tomei, which sold for one million dollars and WHAT WOMEN WANT, starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt – the second highest grossing romantic comedy of all time.

In addition to Diane, Italian screenwriter, Roberto Marchionni (‘Menotti’), nominated for an Italian Oscar for THEY CALL ME JEEG, Scott Collette, former Sales Agent-turned-writer and Jen Grisanti, former VP of Current Programming at CBS/Paramount will be mentors.

Each mentor only has 3-4 writers in their small mentoring group, over a 5 day period (max: 14 writers at the retreat).

If interested contact claire@rocabertiwriters.com, stating that you were ‘Sent by Jeanne’ – this will entitle you to a 5% discount – as the spots tend to go very quickly! A Skype call would then be set up to discuss your work and see who will be the best fit for you as a mentor.
