Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Your Story on the Page with DJ Connell

Sun 6 - Sun 13 Sep 2020

Breaking Through and Putting Your Story on the Page

This course is not about learning the right or wrong way of writing. It’s about getting into the flow and getting your story down because no one – no one – gets it right the first time. During the week, we will explore techniques for breaking through the obstacles that hold you back from writing the story you carry inside you. Through energetic discussion and exercises, you will become familiar with the writing process, learn practical skills and gain the confidence you need to give your ideas written form. Throughout, you will be guided and encouraged within a positive and supportive group environment.
