Writers of Koh Phangan kicks off Year 5 of Write Night on 28 December 7pm at Orion’s Wellness Lounge. In addition to hundreds of tall tales, hundreds of hours of literary toolkit development, and innumerable new friendships, our island tradition has spawned books, blogs, poetry collections, and refreshed writing avocations.
Write Night is always free. Half the group are commonly non-native speakers, very few are professional writers, all come with the conviction that storytelling is our birthright.
Please join us. Our hosts, Orion proprietor Daliah Barkan and detox nutritionist MariaRoza Rainboe, offered us the cozier, writing-friendly Wellness Lounge, right behind the Beach Shala. Nine comfy bean bags are surrounded by chairs, hammocks, and other seating options for a quieter, more intimate creative space, easily allowing for 10-20 writers.
We will also have our very own Tom Vater back on the island to lead our weekly creative toolkit session. Welcome back to the asylum, Tom!
We will go back to our original 7pm start time with no competition from evening yoga classes.
Facilitator Brian Gruber will have a new slate of author videos ready to roll.
If you have written a letter or posted your views on the web, you are a writer. And if you have made the journey to Koh Phangan, you surely have stories to tell. No experience necessary. All writing levels welcomed.
Time to tell some stories.
