CREATIVE WRITING IN ATHENS: May 31 2014- June 30 2014
In partnership with the Kingston Writing School, The British Council is proud to announce the second annual International Creative Writing Summer School.
This year the International Creative Writing Summer School will offer specialist workshops for anyone wishing to enhance their skills and talent as a writer. Established writers and Kingston University professors will work in small groups with writers from across the world on an intensive programme, which will involve workshops, a range of writing activities, group discussions, readings and one-to-one tutorials.
Courses on offer will include fiction, poetry, non-fiction, literary translation and a mixed genre course. A series of lectures on contemporary British literature and art in Greece will also take place as part of the summer school.
The International Creative Writing Summer School aims to give writers the opportunity to explore and develop their imaginative and expressive potential, and to raise their awareness of the technical and compositional issues associated with writing.
Courses will be held in English and are suitable for writers at all levels. They will take place every day from Monday to Friday between 18.30 and 21.00 in Athens and Thessaloniki. See the British Council website for more information.
