Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Humorous Writing with Tony Hawks

Sun 22 - Sun 29 Aug 2021

Humorous Writing

Tony will take you through the various approaches to humorous prose drawing on his experience from his successful books, as well as live performances and Radio 4 panel games. The emphasis will be on fun and simply exploring the genre. There will be no pressure to ‘be funny’, nor will anyone have to read anything out that they don’t want to.


What's included?

Tony'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 holidays@skyros.com to discuss your requirements. Find out more about this holiday here.
