Two days in Fes was all she needed to know she wanted to come back as soon as possible.

Jan returns this June with another group of writers and artists in tow. Each morning her writing and creativity workshops will take their inspiration from afternoon and evening concerts at the Fes Sacred Music Festival.

Jan is inviting artists and writers of all genres: poets, songsters, novelists, travel writers, visual artists, performers, photojournalists; anyone who is interested in exploring the relationship between sound and voice, story and song, composition and structure as well as other synergies between music, art and writing craft.

The morning workshops will take place on the terrace at Riad Rcif, a wonderfully restored former palace in the heart of the Fes medina. Participants can stay at Riad Rcif or choose the budget option to arrange their own accommodation.

If you want to join Jan’s retreat it is important to book asap. All info here:
