      About this trip

       📚✨ "Calling all storytellers! 🖋️✨ Unplug from the ordinary and plug into inspiration at our upcoming writing retreat. Immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature, surround yourself with fellow writers, and let the creative energy flow. Whether you're a seasoned author or just starting your literary journey, join us for a week of words, wisdom, and wonderful connections. Let's turn the blank page into a canvas of endless possibilities! 🌿📖 #WritingRetreat #InkAndImagination #CreateWithPassion" 


      Each morning, we meet for a buffet breakfast between 08:00 – 09:30. Our morning session begins at 09:30 and runs to 12:30, with a short break in between. These sessions are detailed in the itinerary below. The afternoons are yours to write, edit, walk the beach, swim, hike from one village to another, or take a nap—whatever you like. We meet for dinner in the early evening, around 8:00 p.m., and then spend the rest of the evening chatting about writing. We’ll have readings, critiques, and motivational stories of successes and how to manage your own career.

      Chris (C.C.) Humphreys is an actor, playwright, fight choreographer and novelist. He has written nine historical fiction novels including The French Executioner, runner up for the CWA Steel Dagger for Thrillers; Vlad – The Last Confession, the epic novel of the real Dracula; and A Place Called Armageddon. His latest YA novel is The Hunt of the Unicorn. His work has been translated into thirteen languages.
