Skriverejse / Writing Retreat 
Cirali, Turkey, 20-27/10 2024

with Alexander Weinstein & Mads Bunch

Immerse yourself in a week of creative writing and a deep-dive into creativity in Cirali this summer!

 

Join Mads Bunch, author, translator, and Director of Skriveskolen for Creative Writing, and the award-winning Danish-American author and filmmaker, Alexander Weinstein, for a week-long immersion into creative writing with craft classes, evening readings, and one-on-one consultations along the incredible coastline of Turkey.

 

Teaching will be in English but you can write/get feedback/mentoring in Danish (Alexander speaks Danish too).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Situated along the beachfront, we will be staying at the Myland Nature Center Hotel, 100 m from the sea, surrounded by mountains and beautiful preserved beaches (photo above) where turtles come to nest!

 

Cirali is a hidden oasis along Turkey's Southwestern Mediterranean coast, a perfect location for exploring your writing, generating new work, and rejuvenating your creativity.

 

We begin the day with morning breakfast, followed by a generative craft class to get you working on the projects you've been wanting to create and finish.

 

Afternoons are open for writing time, having lunch in the local village, and relaxing on the beach, followed by our afternoon seminars.

 

Our classes are perfect for poets, fiction, and non-fiction writers of all levels of experience.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to an incredible week of writing, community, and creative rejuvenation this fall.
