Writers' fantasy 

I suspect that most writers share a common fantasy of working beneath coconut palms, a glass of Kava to hand and the gentle ripple of the Pacific breaking on the shoreline; so holding a writing course in Daku Resort, Savusavu, Fiji, has to be a winner. I can think of few locations that can match the stunning setting of this Hidden Paradise.

Oh yes, the diving is said to be pretty good as well.

Writing in Paradise is led by Andrea Stretton, a leading literary journalist in Australia, best known for her 15 years of presenting arts shows on SBS and ABC TV. The course runs October 10-16: there will be daily workshops and discussions with the aim of producing a short story by the end of the week. TravelMaxia.com quote the cost of the course including accommodation and air fares ex-Sydney to be Aus$2,900 per writer, with discounts for non-writing partners. Different rates apply for people who wish to make their own travel arrangements. Dates: Saturday Oct 9 – Sunday Oct 17.

For South Pacific Resorts TravelMaxia.com is an excellent accommodation directory of resorts and hotels in Fiji, Tonga, Cook Islands, Tahiti, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Australia, Micronesia, New Caledonia, Tahiti, New Zealand and Vanuatu.
