THE ‘FIRST BEST’ WRITING COURSE IN SPAIN
With Niamh Ferguson and Crysse Morrison 28th May – 4 June 2016
Ever thought of yourself as a writer? If you have, or even if you haven’t, this course offers something different that will surprise you. Whether you want to explore personal memories or unleash your wildest imaginings, Niamh and Crysse create a nurturing and fun environment to help you discover, develop, and polish your ideas.
They’ll take you step by step, using light-hearted exercises, from the first scraps of an idea to a finished piece of personal writing that you’ll be really pleased with. It’s astonishing what you can achieve in a week! Our bespoke course will include a two-hour writing session each morning to generate and expand ideas, and you’ll reconvene at twilight for a further hour. At the end of the week, Niamh and Crysse will hold a soiree in our beautiful amphitheatre, which will give you a golden opportunity to complete your course by performing your chosen piece to the rest of the group.
One-to-one sessions are also available.
There will of course, be plenty of time to relax and write at your leisure, either on your private terraces or in our extensive and verdant gardens and there will be a welcome Barbecue at our Tiki Bar where you will be able to feast on fresh local fish, meat or vegetarian kebabs and salads from the gardens.
Trips to the beach can also be arranged at anytime throughout your stay for a small surcharge. If you want anything extra it can be arranged for you, whether it’s a luxurious massage or beauty treatment to an afternoon of horse riding. All prices include writing classes, accommodation, food and nonalcoholic beverages. Prices start from £840 per person per week based on sharing.
For more information on prices and room options please get in touch. If you want a sharing option and are coming alone, we are more than happy to find someone to share with you. Flights and insurance are not included in the price although we will be providing transfers for selected flights on the 28th May and 4th June 2015, details of which will be available nearer the time.
