The course starts on Sunday, July 10 at 5 p.m. and ends on Friday, July 15 at 3 p.m.
It is not a theoretical course but an intensive course of writing practice and meditation.
The meditation practices support your creative process, help you disconnect and focus, find a space of serenity conducive to creativity, and lots of authentic material from which to take inspiration for your stories.
The course of small writing exercises lead you to the creation of a short story from autobiographical material. You explore how a narrative idea is born, discover the protagonist, make him move within a story, choose the point of view and narrator best suited to give effectiveness and beauty to the theme of your story. You write and compare yourself, in an atmosphere of openness and absence of judgment, following a path that allows you to try to write in your own way, receive personal guidance, explore texts by great authors, compare yourself with the teacher and be in a group of people with whom you can share ideas, texts, cues, stimuli. In the end, you will be holding your own writing, unpredictable at first, the result of the journey.
Visits to enchanting places, to the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, S. Damiano and the Hermitage of the Carceri, with the intense and unique atmospheres that characterize them, will be a source of creative nourishment and further stimulation, for your sensitivity and your writing. Visits will be accompanied by a professional guide, and transportation is organized by minivan.
It is normal that there will be people with different experience in the group, students who have been attending Reverì for a few years and new people; the mutual exchange is very effective for everyone. There will be no shortage of moments of total relaxation and peace!
