Met de Vrijbuiter varen we uit
Over de Hollandse wateren
'Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board.'
Zora Neale Hurston, African-American writer and anthropologist (1891-1960)
This summer HetMoet welcomes aspiring writers to partake in a sailing writing course!
During the course of six days twelve novice writers will work on a novel, a poem, a short story or an essay. We will begin our journey in Zierikzee, after which the original Dutch barge de Vrijbuiter will sail by literary locations, such as Zierikzee (Multatuli) and Veere (Nescio). The trip will end at the Dordtse book market.
Every day will commence by having a chat with the skipper over some morning coffee. The aspiring writers will partake in workshops conducted by the following established writers or editors: Niña Weijers, Yentl van Stokkum, Gilles van der Loo and Alma Mathijsen. This programme is curated by editor Stefanie Liebreks. In between workshops Stefanie and the editors of HetMoet will be available to assist the aspiring writers with their writing.
When the sun sets we will go ashore and end the day with a literary activity. In the evenings the participants will also have ample time to write, socialise, get inspired by fellow aspiring writers, or just stare into the horizon.
We set sail on the 28th of June!
