Aegean Arts Circle (AAC) writing workshops are held in Andros, Greece and are led by award winning authors.  

I am honored to announce that I will be working with writer, poet, editor Kristina Marie Darling for summer 2024. (bio in instructor link).

These small writing workshops are intensive and they were created for those of us who need time to get away from our regular lives to write. Since 2003, writers have been arriving from all over the world to be part of something special on a Greek Cycladic island. The place: Andros, the writing workshops: Aegean Arts Circle, the instructors: award winning authors.

There are many choices out there on what to do with your vacation time, your writing and your money especially after having survived the surreal circumstances we all lived through with lockdowns, isolation, and the new world order due to Covid.

Aegean Arts Circle writing workshops are different. Aegean Arts Circle  respects the commitment and financial investment writers make to carve out time for writing. Aegean Arts Circle  gives you what every writer needs: A room of one's own and a small knit writing community - a writing workshop that meets every day and is challenging enough to bring out the best in you as a writer (aspiring or published), the chance to work  closely with talented award winning authors, to be cared for while you focus on creating, be treated to great freshly cooked meals, have ample time to have  your writing read and  commented on because workshop groups are kept intentionally small. New writing always emerges. The island with its serene landscape doesn't hurt either.
