International Creative Writing Summer School 2016

In partnership with the Kingston Writing School and Kingston University, we're pleased to announce the courses that comprise our fourth annual International Creative Writing Summer School in Athens and Thessaloniki.

The Summer School provides opportunities for writers from across the world to develop their critical and analytical skills, enhance their writing abilities, and work intensely in an inspiring and creative environment with experienced writers associated with the Kingston Writing School, Kingston University, London. Among the writers and professors who have taught at the Summer School in the past are: Rachel Cusk, Paul Bailey, James Miller, Norma Clarke and Maurice Walsh.

This year, the Summer School has broadened and enriched its programme and offers students the opportunity to practise writing fiction, non-fiction, poetry, scriptwriting and suspense writing under the supervision and guidance of highly accomplished writers.

Students may choose from three two-week courses and four one-week courses in Athens, and four one-week courses in Thessaloniki. Workshops in each course will be scheduled from Monday to Friday between 18.30 and 21.00, with extracurricular activities such as readings and tutorials taking place throughout the week, including Saturday mornings.

Courses will be held in English and are suitable for writers at all levels. Check out British Council's website for further details: https://www.britishcouncil.gr/en/events/international-creative-writing-summer-school-2016
