Now we have all this celebrating out of the way it"s time to get on with some serious holidaying in 2011 with our creative writing and painting courses at www.breakaway-to-bearn.com, in south west France.
First off is a creative writing course with Crysse Morrison-
the course May 8th - 15th
A chance to find and explore your own personal writing 'voice': this course uses experience and imagination to show you how to write creatively in any genre, whether words are your passion or have never written before. Shared exercises are designed to inspire ideas as well as show techniques, and the emphasis is on fun. We'll meet in the mornings with a short pre-meal soiree, to leave the rest of the day free to enjoy in your own way.
Crysse Morrison is a full-time free-lance writer. Her two novels, 'Frozen Summer' and 'Sleeping in the Sand', were published by Hodder & Stoughton. She also writes short fiction and poetry, and has a regular column in Writing Magazine.
Crysse is an experienced and popular creative writing tutor who has led courses throughout the world.
price from 525 euros per person
Next are my painting and drawing holidays-
I am an experienced artist, photographer and graphic designer. The courses are designed to appeal to the beginner and improver alike. I make sure that everyone receives personal tuition as well as in the group by keeping the maximum number of artists to eight on each course. Also included is a visit to Pau, the Pyrenees or the Atlantic coast, an evening meal at a local restaurant, wine tasting, visit to a chocolate factory and other excursions.
