Itinerary & Pricing

The Slovenia retreat includes many hours of writing time, 8 hours of WildWriting classes, morning progress check-ins, sharing our work in the evenings, and 3 hours of private meeting time with Judyth.

Each afternoon we'll break for an activity in the kitchen to learn about local food production and preparation by picking fruit from heirloom trees, canning preserves, making schnapps or foraging in the forest. The Novaks practice SlowFood by securing the majority of their ingredients from their fields, their neighbors, the nearby forest and famed local trout stream. It will be the freshest food you've ever tasted!

Please refer to the Eat-Write-Travel website for exact details on pricing and itinerary.

Judyth Hill was the editor of my three previous poetry collections. We reunited in Slovenia to edit my fourth manuscript. Where I was stumped, Judyth provided a title, a simple deletion or addition of a word or sentence, and the poem would be complete.  Sometimes, she'd send me off to write more. A writer needs a second pair of eyes. Judyth offers 20/20 vision and wild mind.  I love the alchemy we create together and its fruits.  In addition to her editing, she's a master teacher. I unreservedly recommend any course or workshop she ever offers.

Natalie Goldberg,
Author of Writing Down the Bones…, Santa Fe, NM

Somewhere inside living the life of a poet, Judyth Hill grew the heart of a teacher.

When I first set her and a select crew of New Mexico poets and writers loose teaching the Writing down the Bones timed writing process, Judyth took all the tools and went for it. Anyone that has heard her read poems, or seen her teach her classes, knows her passion for and commitment to poetry and her students. She has developed teaching into a deep art.  WildWriting: The Dharma of Poetry shares her fresh way of looking at writing, her wild exuberance and enthusiasm for students, for poetry, for keeping alive the lineage of Poetry. The practices and exercise of WildWriting  will bring people to the page  with original depth and guide writers to follow their own passions onto the page.
