Do you believe that everyone should have the opportunity to unlock their creative potential?

We believe that everyone deserves the freedom to imagine, write and explore ideas regardless of their age or financial background.

We offer residential weeks for schools, young people and adult groups.

Our weeks for schools and groups follow the same pattern as our adult course programme – led by two professional writers, with tutorials, group workshops, and time and space to write.
