Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Turn Your Life into Words with Stephen Clarke

Sun 9 - Sun 16 Jun 2024

You might want to write about your whole life, a single relationship, a road trip, your job or your personal take on any experience you've ever had. You can express all this in a memoir, novel, rap, poem, article, blog or any other collection of published words.

Whatever your goals, there are some core things you have to consider – your angle, scope, voice, genre and audience. This course will help you to decide what you want to write and how to go about it.

What's included?

Stephen's course is held in Atsitsa Bay on Skyros island in Greece and is part of the wide range of courses and activities available. The holiday includes full board twin shared accommodation in an eco-hut. Single upgrades and twin shares in the house are available. Chat through the website, call +44 (0)1983 86 55 66 or email to discuss your requirements.
