Children’s and Young Adults’ Fiction: Tutored Retreat

Supporting you to bring out your best work

Monday October 14th - Saturday October 19th 2019

Totleigh Barton

A course for writers who have a partially developed piece to work on. Whether you are working on a first draft, in the middle of development or polishing up your work, our aim is to build confidence and skills and to help you to write to the very best of your ability. During in-depth sessions we will provide honest criticism, experienced advice and, above all, plenty of encouragement. Participants are invited to submit up to 2,000 words of a work-in-progress, to be sent to totleighbarton@arvon.org by 14 September 2019.

Single room price: £795
