FICTION SHORT COURSE

Finishing it

Friday May 8th - Sunday May 10th 2020

Lumb Bank

It’s easy enough to start something, but not always so easy to get to the end of that daunting first draft. It seems to be a common problem for writers, from those starting out to those who are more experienced. How do you keep motivated and keep your ideas on track – especially when the demons of doubt and distraction come knocking? We will offer helpful advice and fun exercises to encourage you to keep going. We’ll also be honest about the graft involved in putting a novel together, and give you different ways of approaching the challenging but rewarding act of writing on a daily basis.

Single room price: £530
