A 360-degree boost to your novel

GENRE: Fiction & Centre Retreat
The Hurst

Developing a novel poses challenges of craft, imagination and stamina. This retreat offers you that valuable, elusive blend of solitude and writerly companionship where, with the help of two highly experienced tutors, you will learn to diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of your work, and put to good use the fundamentals of strong fiction writing: character, voice, narrative structure and setting. In addition, we will address some of the psychological hurdles, such as self-doubt and displacement activities, that get in the way of completing of a novel.

Single room price: £725
