Denver, Colorado - The Left Bank Writers Retreat, a small-group writing workshop, is slated for June 17-22 in Paris, France. Hosted by writer Darla Worden, the workshop will focus on writing in a salon setting during mornings and touring Paris in the afternoons.

"Writers at every level enjoy this retreat," Worden says. "We explore Paris's deep literary roots while also experiencing Paris's sights, restaurants and museums."

The cost of the six-day Left Bank Writers Retreat is $1999 and includes morning writing sessions, coaching and one-on-one time with the instructor for a maximum of 8 writers, as well as lunch each day, admission to museums and area sights, an excursion to Montmartre, a picnic on the banks of the Seine and a literary tour visiting many of the sites featured in Woody Allen's recent movie Midnight in Paris.

Now in its third year, the retreat takes place on the historic Île Saint-Louis in the heart of Paris. Writers arrange their own lodging and transportation to Paris, and can reserve a spot in the retreat with a $500 deposit.

Worden has written more than 100 magazine articles about art, architecture and travel over the past 20 years. Author of the novel Road Shoes and co-author of The Rusty Parrot Cookbook (Gibbs Smith, 2009), she also writes the popular blog Frenchophile
