About The Oxbelly Writers Retreat 

The Greek nonprofit Oxbelly has announced an inaugural writers retreat led by Nigerian writer and program director Chigozie Obioma in Costa Navarino, Greece from June 3-11, 2023. Writers from around the globe can apply to be a part of this program.

Oxbelly is a Greek non-profit founded by producer and Faliro House founder Christos V. Konstantakopoulos in 2015 as a safe space to build an international community of storytellers through a series of screenings, masterclasses, workshops and seminars.

The Oxbelly Writers Retreat brings together writers from around the world for a week of literary and creative exchange, held at Costa Navarino in historic Messinia, Greece. In its inaugural year, Oxbelly Writers Retreat will support 15 emerging fiction writers and poets committed to elevating their craft, strengthening their literary voice, and contributing to intercultural dialogues around storytelling.

Fellows will engage in workshops and craft sessions led by faculty and guests who are themselves established and acclaimed writers and industry leaders, followed by unstructured time to write in the serene and transformative environment the Messinian scenic landscape offers. The Oxbelly Writers Retreat has no cost to apply and all expenses for fellows are covered.

The Retreat will consist of a series of workshops led by a faculty of acclaimed writers. The second half offers a mini-residence for the fellows to soak in the scenic and peaceful atmosphere of Costa Navarino and produce work unhindered by Retreat obligations, with evening talks, lectures and readings by both the writing mentors, guest writers, and industry guests.

Fellows will also engage in cross programmatic opportunities with the Oxbelly Episodic Program, running concurrently at Costa Navarino, thereby expanding their networks and the cross-pollination between the literary and TV industries.
