Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Dream Author with Sophie Hannah

Sun 5 - Sun 12 Sep 2021

When publishers talk about finding a 'dream author', they mean an author who is a dream to work with. From a writer's point of view, however, that description can and should mean something else: how to fulfil your creative dreams and make precisely the contribution that you want to make according to your own talents, needs and ideals. Internationally bestselling crime writer Sophie Hannah has created this course in order to share with writers at every stage of their writing journeys everything she wishes she had known when she started out on hers. She will teach you how to become an author whose dreams come true, in a course that covers the creative, business, psychological and emotional aspects of surviving and thriving as a writer in today's world.
