Paxos - Writing Courses



Heidi Fuller-love was the New York Travel Writers Society's
Travel Radio Personality of the Year in 2013

In Summer 2015 we shall be offering a new and slightly different Travel Writing course: 'Writing About Greece', which will focus on Greek places, people and food. It will be very much a hands-on course that will include both writing and photography, although the photography element will be more about taking a picture that will sell than improving your technical skills.

During the week you will look at many aspects of Greek life, such as mezes, local shops, interesting backstreets and local crafts, and use this as a basis for writing and photography, whilst at the same time learning more about local life. You will then learn how to use your notes and images as a basis to try and get your work published.  Full details will be available shortly.

The course will be led by highly successful travel writer and photographer, Heidi Fuller-love. Twenty years ago Heidi was a London comedy club owner with a theatre degree, then she moved to France to open her own hotel and started writing about her adopted country's cuisine and culture for various Francophile magazines. Today she lives between France and Greece, travels for six months of the year and is a highly successful travel and food writer. She hosts a monthly travel show reporting live from destinations around the globe for British Airways in-flight radio and her features and photographs regularly appear in magazines and newspapers worldwide ranging from The Guardian and The LA Times, to Thomas Cook Travel magazine and Asian Geographic. In Spring 2013 Heidi won the New York Travel Writers Society' award for Travel Radio Personality of the Year for her monthly for her British Airways travel shows. She was also one of the five finalists in the Travel Broadcaster of the Year category of the prestigious 2013 British Travel Press Awards.

Where you will stay: Accommodation will be in villas with private pools situated in the olive groves a short walk from the pretty village of Loggos, the smallest of the three coastal villages on Paxos. However, if you already have your own accommodation, it will be possible just to join the group tuition sessions. We can also help you to find accommodation if you would like to stay somewhere other than our shared villas or would like to extend your holiday and spend a few additional days on Paxos or a few days on Corfu, either before or after the writing course. Please contact us to discuss the options. 

Register your interest: If you would be interested in joining this course and would like to receive more information once this is available, then please Contact Us.

Second Holiday/Course Discount: We will give you a discount of £40 if you book any two holidays or courses in our current programme.
