FICTION TUTORED RETREAT
Make a deeper commitment to the writing life
Nothing is sacred
Monday November 2nd - Saturday November 7th 2020
Whether you have been edited before or this is your first experience of showing your work to a professional, we aim to share our enthusiasm for editing as an indispensable and inspiring part of the writing process. Whatever stage the material is at, every edit can be seen as a mini creative writing course, improving instincts for pacing, setting, drama and characterisation. Nothing is sacred and editing is always a creative act. We’ll help hone those tricky early chapters, as well as identifying the key areas of your novel which need the most attention. Participants are invited to send 1,500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 2 October for the tutors to read in advance.
Single room price: £850
