Fabulous Spring Writing Holiday with bestselling author and University of East Anglia and Guardian writing tutor Mark McCrum. The course will be held from Monday 30th April to Monday 7th May 2018 at Villa Stari Mlin, a luxurious 400- year-old Montenegrin stone villa on the Lustica peninsula in the small village of Zabrdje.
This will be a relaxed and enjoyable week, with daily sessions on key areas of creative writing, with examples drawn from expert practitioners. Whether you are a beginner, a seasoned professional who wants to unlock their creative side, or someone who is struggling to finish a novel, memoir, or other non-fiction, this course aims to offer practical and well-tried solutions. Everything is optional, so there’s no need to feel tied down.
In addition to writing and delicious food, guests will have a chance to take a boat tour of the Bay of Kotor, visiting island monasteries and Venetian Republic fortresses, and will also be given the opportunity to visit a working centuries-old family olive farm in a nearby village, learning how to taste olive oil like a professional, and trying local delicacies over lunch in the olive press cellar. There will also be the opportunity to join walks in the beautiful hills, visiting abandoned mediaeval villages and strolling along paths amongst the mediterranean flora.
