Write in the Sun

Monomito, a Portuguese non-profit screenwriting cooperative, and the Flanders Script Academy, are running a one-week international scriptwriting workshop "aimed at training participants on how to write stories that travel successfully across national and cultural borders."

The workshop will take place in Portugal at the Arrábida Monastery located at Arrábida's natural reserve, 40 minutes drive from Lisbon, from July 15 - 21. Seminar and workshop hours are from 9am - 12.30pm, and from 2pm - 5.30pm. The course tutor is Dr. Patrick Cattrysse, co-founder of the Flanders Script Academy.

Applicants must download the application form from the web site, and send it along with their CV before June 10. The workshop is limited to 15 participants.

Cost depends on the type of lodging: €950 (private room) or €890 (double room - shared), and includes the seminars, rooms from 15 - 21 July, Internet access, three meals per day and two coffee-breaks, use of the facilities such as meeting rooms, swimming pool and guided tour to the Monastery, and transportation from Lisbon to Arrábida and back.
