Of course, the week is all about writing. You are encouraged to design your own creative tropical rhythm… Maybe you like to get up early to take a walk through the nature reserve surrounding the plantation house or to do some work before breakfast. By going to bed early, you will be less affected by jet lag while on the island and when you return home.
We follow a structured program to get the most out of our time together. Hostess Loekie makes your breakfast to order, when you want it and exactly how you like it. Every morning around 10 AM I give a workshop on a theme that you can immediately put to use that day. Lunch is provided at the plantation house, so you can continue working undisturbed.
If you need 1 on 1 guidance, it is always available. At the end of the afternoon or in the evening we take a walk, go for a swim or take a mini excursion, combined with dinner. The ideal combination of maximum writing time and still getting a feel for the island. The program and other general information that applies to all of my writing retreats can be found on the writing week page.
The first evening, during the introductory dinner, we’ll decide on the details of the program together. Below are some examples of excursions to get to know the island better:
