Old wine, new bottles

GENRE: Fiction
The Hurst

A wise man said that writing was the most fun anyone could have on their own. This week we’re going to explore how historical fiction can be twice the fun – not only how we present an engaging yarn, but also how we revitalise a time lost to time. How do we make the past present – and alive? Together we’ll stretch our ideas of what our writing can be, finding ways to weave words that are authentic but not leaden, credible but distinctly our own. We’ll unearth that style and story, giving you the confidence and inspiration to work across time.


This course is half-price for Arvon 18-25 members and those in receipt of certain UK state benefits – see here for concession pricing information.

Single room price: £800
