Children’s and young adult fiction: tutored retreat

Improving your playwriting craft from blank page to stage

November 7th - November 12th 2018

Lumb Bank

Some stories never seem to leave us. They circle around us just as we edge towards them. How do you find the centre of that story and the voice in which to tell it? How do you give narrative shape to memories? Establishing a consistent tone can be one of the most demanding tasks in storytelling. Often a story is part of a bigger tale. In this week of memoir writing, you will explore the creative potential of your mini stories and anecdotes so that they begin to come together as a unified whole.
