Što ćete raditi

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 and Author of WOMEN À LA MODE: A MEMOIR OF WRITING A BOOK ABOUT FEMINISTS IN PARIS.

Originally from Los Angeles, California, I'm celebrating my 12 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!

Such a lovely way to start the day in Antibes. The weather was cool, but the shining sun balanced it out. There were two of us, plus Augustine, so felt like there was more personalized time. Along with learning the stories of past local writers, we had a chance to do a bit of our own writing, as well as recap at the end of the tour. Our path took us through some nooks, so were able to discover shops, that I later visited before departure. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to reconnect with their love of writing.

I had a great time learning about the literary figures who lived in Antibes while walking through the beautiful town. Also, Augustine has such a welcoming personality and I really enjoyed talking to her.

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!

Augustine presents stories about writers' lives here in Antibes with a passion and deep knowledge of their lives and works. Inspiring me to take up personal writing, right on the spot !

This was a very informative experience. Augustine was super friendly and knew the area in detail, being from there. I would really recommend to do this if you’re in Antibes. Thanks again.

It was wonderful and inspiring to meet Augustine, a very warm, brilliant American writer, who is totally part of the Antibes community, with great historic anecdotes about famous writers whose works have been influenced by their lives in Antibes. I would highly recommend this experience!
