There will also be different level writing workshops. In our workshops we will focus intensely on the writing process and the craft of fiction. Working with participants' writing, their weaknesses as well as their strengths, we will explore the nuances of building a story and creating vivid characters. We aim to create a nurturing, kind and open environment, yet work to high standards in order to help each writer achieve his or her intentions on the page. We will also encourage participants to experience the lush and inspiring natural surroundings, by combining excursions with writing exercises that encourage participants to dig deeper into their creativity, to look at the world around us in a new way and to express what we see in our own unique voice.
All our seminars/workshops are situated in fabulous settings; Chateaux in France, 18th Century Villas in Italy, Safari Game Lodges in Africa and Rainforest Lodges in Belize. There we'll wine and dine you in the luxury you deserve.
