Re-ignite your writing

Monday January 13th - Saturday January 18th 2020

Totleigh Barton

This winter course is a chance to hunker down away from the unforgiving elements and take the time to re-ignite your writing. We’ll start by stripping everything back to the bare bone: what is inspiring you at this point in your writing life? Who are you speaking to and what do you want to say? What stories do you want to tell and how do you want to tell them? Through a series of readings, reflections, exercises and experiments, we will stoke the flames of inspiration and find your writing voice anew for the months ahead.

Single room price: £795

This course is available half-price for Arvon 18-25 members and benefits-related concessions.
