Would totally recommend this retreat to others….! I would say ‘Come on the retreat with an open heart and an open mind. Come to learn how to write your book and leave with new skills and probably a new understanding of yourself. Getting away to the peaceful and tranquil setting that is Skala Erressos, is worth the time and the money – I would never have got the full benefit of the retreat if I had done not gone away from my home and normal life.’
This was the most amazing time - the serenity of the island - a place to write/reflect/allow yourself to be inspired, the birthplace of Sappho, simple/outstanding Greek cuisine, ability to swim in the ocean everyday, take hikes at sundowners, come away with a solid plan for writing/publishing a book, bond with other writers. The course served almost as a week-long therapy session for me - which is what I think people will kind of be looking for - a therapeutic getaway on a beautiful island."

I found Sarah Bullen's Memoir Writing Workshop to be highly useful and informative, I had been writing memoir for years with books as my guide, but she broadened my awareness of what good memoir writing consists of better than any book I've ever read on the subject. Her teaching style is concise, clear, inspiring, and filled with rich suggestion, I left feeling much more aware of what it takes to write good memoir and would highly recommend this workshop to anyone who is interested in memoir writing. The setting in the beautiful Greek village of Eressos is magic as well, perfect for one's imagination to flourish!
