A Creative Writing Holiday in Nuweiba, Egypt - POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE


Of Writing the Stars and Sea
A Creative Writing Holiday in Nuweiba, Egypt


It is my greatest pleasure that the Free Writers Centre is able to announce this new wonderful writing holiday within the sublime serenity of Nuweiba and specifically with Habiba Community as our hosts.

Here, within the tranquil haven of the beach lodge we can take our daily writing classes, enjoy wonderful freshly cooked food, delight in the ocean and take the time to stand on this sacred ground whilst gazing at the stars. The evenings can provide us with time to relax together as well as the opportunity to share your writing as spoken word. The Habiba Community have many things within their own grounds that are deserving and of interest, not least an organic farm giving fresh produce to the kitchen. There are also optional trips for anyone wanting to take them that can be fitted into our schedule, such as a half day trip to the Colored Canyons, and a Bedouin Dinner trip in the mountains.

The writing course will look at how to use the alchemy of our own dream tapestry to weave into our creative writing. We will work on theme, characters and archetypes, dramatic structure and plot. We will also look at Dreamtime totems and landscape. All participants, whether just starting out in developing their writing or those who are further on the writing path will benefit.

Let us go to Habiba, let us go to the beloved lands and sea!

“Don’t wait any longer.
Dive in the ocean,
Leave and let the sea be you.”



The trip is arranged by the Free Writers Centre 
through 9Yards Business Development for Habiba Village
