What you'll do

You'll jump right into the writing. You'll bring your material: photos, notes, sketches or simply memories in your head of your Crete-trip (or another). You only need the appetite for writing. Through creativity exercises like clustering and mind-mapping you'll find the options for your story. You'll describe the main character(s) of the story and ask yourself: Who is traveling? How to describe him or her in a way the reader can imagine them? Whom does she or he meets and lives (which) adventures? You specify the places and their ambiance, the taste of food and other new impressions. And/or you write about adventures as for example heading down the Samaria Gorge or discovering the red gravel of Elafonisi beach. You'll specify the genre (blog, fiction, short story, letter, article, song or even poem) and then the writing will find it's way: you write, we check and I'll give you tips and tricks to improve and finish the text. The different steps of the "adventure" will be found and the dramaturgic structure. In the end you know a lot more about how to use the right words and how to bring life into your text.
