Sept 13-20, 2020 - Skyros Centre

From August 30, DJ Connell will teach three writing labs on the beautiful island of Skyros in Greece. The first two workshops will be held at Atsitsa, a spectacular bay with a pebble beach and sparkling turquoise water. At this venue, participants are free to participate in other courses and activities in addition to the writing course. 


The third workshop will be held at the cosy Skyros Centre with its breathtaking view over a ravine and the ocean. The centre is located within a classic white-washed building near the cafes, restaurants and shops of picturesque Skyros village.


The first course, Aug 30-Sept 6, is all about getting you writing and helping you put your story on the page.


The second, Sept 6-13, focuses on the mechanics of writing a novel.

The third, Sept 13-20, is a focused masterclass aimed at getting you started and giving you the confidence, motivation and skills to write the story or book you have within you.


DJ Connell's writing workshops are energetic, serious, focused, enjoyable and all about YOU and your story.
