Creative Writing Holiday
We invite you to join us for a week of Creative Writing with Marina Sossi in this beautiful area of Side, Turkey.
Holiday time is precious to all of us. Everyone needs time to stop, break from the usual routines and leave busy stressful lives behind for a week or two. Finding time and space to relax and revitalise body and mind is essential for a balanced and happy life. But sometimes we want something more than just rest and relaxation away from home...
So how about making the most of your lovely relaxed self by exploring your creative side in SIDE?
Everyone has the potential to create and express themselves, but most of us simply don’t have the time in everyday life. Holiday time allows us to explore new places and meet new friends, but it could also be the perfect time to explore your creativity, find new ways to express yourself and develop new found confidence in your own voice.
On your weeks creative writing holiday you will have a focussed group session everyday carefully guided and encouraged by artist facilitator Marina Sossi, either in the gardens on in one of the inspiring locations around this beautiful old Town. The rest of the time you are free to visit the many historic sights, explore the old shopping streets and lively harbour, spend the day on one of the many beaches, visit local markets, go on a boat trip or indulge in a holistic treatment.
In the creative writing sessions you will be lead through simple exercises in a friendly group atmosphere. There will be opportunities to write in different forms including; poetry, writing from life, fiction and script writing. The sessions are designed to be accessible to everyone, regardless of experience or ability and can be exciting, eye-opening and great FUN! The skills you learn over the week could be the start of a whole new adventure in writing & creativity.
At the end of the week there will be an opportunity to share and celebrate our work in a poetry, story and song evening.
Your stay with us will include all creative writing sessions, accommodation, breakfast/brunch and a welcome and farewell dinner prepared by our Turkish chef.
The cost for one weeks stay to include all the above will be £355.00 per person.
