Fiction: Tutored Retreat

The end is nigh: plotting your finish

Monday June 24th - Saturday June 29th 2019

The Hurst

Often writers get stuck because they don’t consider their work in the context of its ending. Where are you headed and how will you know when it’s done? You’ve heard of a ‘killer first line’ – we’ll consider that killer last page, how to bring your plot together and what it takes to return to page one and edit language. This tutored retreat is for beginner and intermediate writers with a manuscript. After booking, participants are invited to submit up to 2,000 words plus a 500-word synopsis specifying form, genre and a summary of the work-in-progress, to by 24 May 2019.

Single room price: £835

The Hurst

The Hurst is a place you can write, far away from daily distractions. The house and gardens, surrounded by the forest-covered Shropshire Hills, were the former home of playwright John Osborne.
