April 16, 2011

The Eiffel TowerDenver, Colorado – April 15, 2011 – Save money on a 10-day Paris trip – and engage your writing muse – by booking an Orbitz package to Paris this summer. Airfare to Paris is predicted to stay high according to’s Patricia Magana, but current Denver to Paris packages start from $2,200 per person for roundtrip airfare plus 10 nights at a hotel (double occupancy) from June 30 to July 10. The airfare-plus-hotel deal is much cheaper than booking travel and accommodations separately – and the timing is perfect for attending the popular Left Bank Writers Retreat, a salon-style writers’ workshop and literary sightseeing adventure, July 2 – 8.

The Left Bank Writers Retreat is located on Ile Saint-Louis in the Fourth Arrondissement—located near several metro stops—making it an easy destination to reach by metro from any part of the city or by walking from one of the nearby arrondissements.

By taking advantage of the Orbitz deal, two people can enjoy 10 days in Paris plus the Left Bank Writers Retreat for $4,299 per person ($2,200 for hotel/airfare from Denver and the discounted rate of $2,099 for Left Bank Writers Retreat tuition). The price for the writers’ retreat includes morning writing sessions, coaching, daily lunch and admission fees for afternoon excursions. The retreat is limited to just 12 writers.

At the Left Bank Writers Retreat, writers work on their writing each morning in a salon-style setting and explore Paris’s famed literary haunts and landmarks in the afternoon. Hosted by Jackson Hole-based writer Darla Worden, the workshop is open to writers of all levels, in fiction, poetry and nonfiction – and for a limited time, writers who reserve space in the retreat with a $500 deposit will receive a free July 9 tour of the palace at Versailles ($150 value) and the discounted rate of $2,099 for the retreat (for a $200 discount).

Left Bank Writers Retreat writers arrange their own lodging and transportation to Paris, and can reserve a spot in the retreat at or contact Worden at
