Activities at The Skyros Centre, Greece

WRITERS’ LAB: Start to Write with Mez Packer

Sat 24 - Sat 1 Jul 2023

Start to write!

Do you have a story to tell  – but don't know where to start? Are you aching to put your ideas into words – but get confused about structure and form? This course is just what you need. It will focus on aspects of writing; how to develop your ideas and make your writing shine. By the end of the week you will have written a short story, or a chapter from your novel or memoir, and you will come home brimming with enthusiasm to continue your writing journey.

What's included?

Mez's masterclass is held at the Skyros Centre on Skyros island in Greece. This Writers' Lab course runs alongside the Art Studio and Health & Wellbeing programmes. The holiday includes half board, twin shared accommodation in the village. Single upgrades are available. Chat through the website, call +44 (0)1983 86 55 66 or email to discuss your requirements.
