Relax & Write Retreat and Writers' Conference


2nd Annual Relax & Write Retreat and Writers' Conference

April 27th - May 4th 2014

Hacienda San Antonio, Mexico

The Hacienda de San Antonio, nestled in an extraordinary, secluded verdant river valley at the base of an active volcano in the highlands of central Mexico, was superbly restored by the visionary Sir James Goldsmith who also created Cuixmala, where the 2013 Relax & Write retreat was held. To complement his 25,000-acre oceanfront idyll, the late Sir James created out of the ruins of a 19th century hacienda a compelling 24-room retreat that combines the scale and beauty of a classic Mexican hacienda with the graciousness of a traditional English country estate. Add to that all the comforts of a five-star 21st century hotel, a lovely staff that can't do enough to please, delicious organic food prepared by a world-class chef, and an adjacent 6,000-acre ranch of breathtaking beauty and you have the makings of a trip of a lifetime. As of this date, our Special Guests include National Book Award Winner Julia Glass, literary agent Barney Karpfinger, NY Times reporter Sandy Keenan, author Eric Marcus, LA Times film critic Kenneth Turan, and Young Adult author and NY Times writer Michael Winerip*. Stay tuned for additions.

Have a look at the Hacienda's website. Also, download the activities and adventure guide, prepared by Eric Marcus and Barney Karpfinger (who will be among the special guests at the 2014 R&W retreat) and start planning what you'd like to do during your free time, whether your idea of a perfect afternoon is relaxing poolside with a good book, riding horseback under the canopy of a bamboo forest, or hiking through a vast meadow where silence and a resident great blue heron are your only companions.
