For the last fifteen years writers have been arriving from all over the world to be part of something special on a Greek Cycladic island. The place: Andros, the writing workshops: Aegean Arts Circle, the instructors: Award winning authors.
There are many choices out there on what to do with your vacation time and your writing; Aegean Arts Circle writing workshops are different. Aegean Arts Circle respects the commitment and financial investment writers make to carve out time for writing. Aegean Arts Circle gives you what every writer needs: A room of one’s own with a balcony overlooking the deep blue Aegean Sea – a writing workshop that meets every day and is challenging enough to bring out the best in you as a writer (aspiring or published), the chance to work closely with talented award winning authors, to be cared for while you focus on creating, be treated to great freshly cooked meals, have ample time to have your writing read and commented on because workshop groups are kept intentionally small. New writing always emerges.
June 24th-July 3rd 2017 workshop
This multi-genre prose workshop will focus on the process of world building in our writing. How do we construct convincing and authentic worlds from words? Participants are invited to bring a novel chapter, personal essay, short story, travel essay, or memoir to the workshop which will be discussed during the week, addressing issues such as voice, structure, point of view, style, cohesion, beginnings, and endings. We will also work on writing prompts designed to unleash creativity and help us discover sources of inspiration and unmined material within our environment.
