Activities at The Skyros Centre, Greece

Your Writer's Voice with Crysse Morrison

Sun 30 - Sun 6 Sep 2020

This masterclass is for any writer, beginner or more experienced, wanting to develop their authentic personal ‘voice’.

We’ll look at finding ideas through memory and imagination and use a range of shared exercises to explore techniques such as characterisation, dialogue, description, style and pace which can be adapted for any genre. The focus will be on enjoyment – and finding ways to overcome the writer’s inevitable internal critic too.

What's included?

Crysse's Masterclass is held at the Skyros Centre on Skyros island in Greece and runs for three hours per day. The price of £775 includes seven nights half board twin shared accommodation in the village or by the sea plus morning yoga and afternoon singing with Carol Donaldson. Single upgrades are available. Chat through the website, call +44 (0)1983 86 55 66 or email to discuss your requirements.
