Course description

Enjoy writing in inspiring surroundings in the supportive company of like-minded people, and enhance your day with a walk in nature. Your tutor will guide you through daily workshops and discussions on key elements of writing, such as characterisation, plot, point of view, sense of place and dialogue. The final session will offer you a practical approach to various stages of editing. The daily schedule incorporates private writing time. You can view a sample timetable on the website.

Hosted by an author and creative-writing tutor with years of experience (teaching all age groups and levels: from secondary-school pupils to students on Creative Writing undergraduate and Masters degrees).

Accommodation will be at the intimate Gasthaus Paxmontana (built 1617) which belongs to the nearby Jugendstil-Hotel Paxmontana, an icon of Art Nouveau listed in the Swiss Historic Hotels directory.

The course fee is inclusive of tuition, accommodation and meals (see website).
