Just received my New Writing North newsletter which includes details of a writing competition to win a Writers Retreat in Italy.  Sounds like a fabulous idea, so I thought I would post the details on my blog in case any of my followers or writer friends wish to enter.  Please find below the information from their webite:

We are offering a free place on our next retreat.
Collecting the Colours of Autumn taking place in October 2013 is the ideal opportunity to enjoy time away from your usual responsibilities and the time and space to concentrate on your writing.

The winner is entitled to an 8 day retreat including writing workshops, free accommodation, airport transfers, and all meals included.
This retreat is open to writers in all fields regardless of nationality or age.
