I organised a a Writing Cruise from Luxor to Aswan from May 12th to 16th and it was fabulous! A true love letter to the Nile and an inspiration beyond the beyond.
It was a fantastic itinerary of temple tours in the mornings and daily writing class in the afternoons, cruising along the inspirational waters of the Nile on a 5 star boat, the Nile Smart, with accommodation and meals all included.
Please see the original advert with details here and keep watching my Writers' Centre blog for further trips: courses and events. http://www.writerscentre.blogspot.com/2014/04/writing-cruise-from-luxor-to-aswan.html

The guide, Mahmoud, 'Mac', that was with us throughout the cruise was exceptionally professional, knowledgable, personable and experienced. Mahmoud has a brilliant website http://www.trulyegypt.com/
for anyone interested in looking at his 'normal' tour options ie those that do not include writing tuition. However, look out here on this blog for more writing holidays and residential workshops coming up of varying lengths and in inspiring destinations around Egypt!!
