Denver, Colorado January 31, 2012 Experience "Midnight in Paris" literary sights firsthand at the Left Bank Writers Retreat. The popular small-group writing workshop, held in Paris, France each summer, spends afternoons touring the city including many featured in the Woody Allen movie, which recently received three Oscar nominations. Through February 14, 2012, the unique Paris travel opportunity is offering a special $400 discount on registration, from $1,999 to $1,599. Left Bank Writers Retreat is slated for June 17 22, 2012, and combines morning writing in a salon setting with cafe lunches and Paris sightseeing.

"We will walk the streets where Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and F. Scott Fitzgerald strolled, drank, and caroused," says writer Darla Worden, who hosts the annual retreat. "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 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 including literary landmarks featured in Woody Allen's "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.
