UCLA Writers' Program Instructors Plan Roman Retreat

World Wide Web— Two UCLA Writers' Program instructors, Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Eve LaSalle Caram are planning an intimate writers' retreat in Rome for October, 2010.

Caram was Howard-Johnson's first instructor in novel writing more than a decade ago. Later the student joined her teacher as a fellow instructor for UCLA's renowned Writers' Program and she has now been teaching for nearly there nearly a decade.

The excitement grows. The two have rented a town home near the Trevi fountain in Rome and are inviting writers to join them for a casual week of writing and promotion seminars and tons of Eternal City inspiration. Rome resident Jo Linsdell, a writer and founder of PROMODay, the free online conference for writers, will join them to present on the ever-important marketing aspects of the publishing industry.

Caram is the author of three novels and was honored by UCLA for her outstanding teaching. Howard-Johnson is an award-winning poet, novelist, former journalist, and author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers ( The pair will tailor seminars to the needs of those who participate.

If participants are interested, Howard-Johnson will lead a tour of nearby Etruscan sites.

Learn more about the retreat at complete with pictures of the town home including its rooftop garden.

Early registration is recommended. Accommodations are very limited. Reach Howard-Johnson for payment details at
