 *2014 AEGEAN ARTS CIRCLE Writing Workshops in Andros*

*with Award winning author*

*Thomas E. Kennedy*

*June 25th-July 4th  2014*

*Aegean Arts Circle will be offering intensive writing workshops for the
twelfth year in a row. The small workshop groups are for aspiring and
published writers. We meet and work in Andros, a quiet Cycladic island.
These workshops are meant to give us time away from everyday distractions
to focus on our writing. We get the chance to interact and learn from each
other and an inspiring author.  Each writer gets a single room with private
balcony overlooking the sea. The  chef makes meals for our group each
night. We meet every day with the instructor and have plenty of private
time to write.  Private small beach, pool, taverna, restaurant at hotel.
Short walk to Gavrio port town. One day off to visit Hora, capital of
Andros; Goulandris museums, villages. *

 *Thomas E. Kennedy**’s 30+ books include novels, story and essay
collections, literary criticism, translation, and anthologies.   His most
recent books are his prize-winning critically praised Copenhagen Quartet –

In the Company of Angels (2010), Falling Sideways (2011), Kerrigan in
Copenhagen, A Love Story (2013), and the forthcoming Beneath the Neon Egg
(2014), all published world-wide by Bloomsbury New York and London. Getting
Lucky: New & Selected Stories, 1982-2012 was published by New American

*He has published hundreds of stories, essays, and translations in such
magazines as North American Review, Gettysburg Review, Kenyon Review,
