Creative Writing Course in Italy
Sat 17 Feb 2018 to Sat 24 Feb 2018
A six day creative writing course, open to all levels of writing skills, at Il Paretaio, an equestrian centre in the heart of Tuscany. Shorter stays possible and optional riding extra.

The course will look at creating engaging narratives, utilizing setting to bring out character and drive story, and using story devices in the setup of our protagonists' critical choices. We will learn how to write empathetic characters and situations, how to produce exciting, yet distinctive dialogue, and how to manipulate language to aid us with these ambitions. Tes provides full written feedback on class work and homework handed in to him.

Il Paretaio is located in the heart of Tuscany and has been hosting riders and their companions since 1987. It is a truly enchanting place, surrounded by hills, woods, vineyards and olive groves with a 360° panorama. For those who do not ride, there are lots of things to see and do in the area and our central location in the Chianti makes us a good base for touring the surrounding area. Florence and Siena are just 30 minutes by car with other places such as San Gimignano, Colle Val d’Elsa, Lucca and Pienza also easily accessible.
