Children’s and Young Adults’ Fiction: Tutored Retreat

Guidance and space to explore your story

Monday June 3rd - Saturday June 8th 2019

Lumb Bank

This is a chance to get real hands-on help with your work-in-progress. Any piece of writing poses challenges, but the guidance offered here will help you push on through to a successful finished draft. We will steer you towards getting the best out of your story during this thought-provoking, supportive, challenging and fun week. After you make a booking, you are invited to share a sample of you writing with the tutors so they are familiar with your work before the course starts. You can submit up to 2,000 words of a work-in-progress in advance, to by 3 May 2019.

Single room price: £795
