Τι θα κάνετε

Antibes was and still is home to many artists and writers. Chief among them: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Graham Greene, and Nikos Kazantzakis, the author of Zorba the Greek. We'll start at the Place Nationale, stroll through the quaint pedestrian streets of the Old Town and see where they lived and worked. We'll read some of their best passages and use the turquoise waters of the Cote d'Azur for inspiration as we learn to write in the style of the greats. We'll share our work if we'd like to and finish with a coffee in a sun drenched or shady cafe.
Other things to note
As it will be primarily an outdoor walk, please wear good shoes, bring sun protection, light jacket if necessary, and your favorite writing materials.

Hi! I’m Augustine! Working Writer, Optimistic Feminist and Author of the forthcoming memoir, WOMEN A LA MODE: Adventures in Global Feminisms, French American Friendship and Writing A Book About Women in Paris.

Originally from Los Angeles, California, I'm celebrating my 10 year anniversary of living in France. Fluent in French as well as the subtle etiquette of interacting with the French, I'm in love with living in Antibes. I'm looking forward to sharing the secret passageways of the Old Town and showing you where the famous and sometimes infamous writers lived, worked and fait la fête!

An absolute pleasure and privilege! Discovering Antibes through the lens of authors and their craft, lives, passions was as perfect way to soak up a city and its charm! By discussing and reading passages - love letters almost - from the likes of the Fitzgerald's, Graham Green and Nikos Kazantzakis you will not only appreciate the beauty and allure of Antibes through their experience but also your own. It was wistfully nostalgic yet contemporary and invigorating - and here is where the credit must be given to the host who is not only very warm and friendly but her infectious passion for writing allows for such creative and thoughtful conversation ( and/or writing) along the way. Thank you again Augustine, I really did have a lovely time and it was great to meet you!

It is always nice to meet a local and even more so if it is a local writer who is knowledgeable about other famous writers who have found inspiration in Antibes. Very easy going and enjoyable experience 😊
