Fiction: Tutored Retreat

Finding your way

Monday August 19th - Saturday August 24th 2019

Lumb Bank

A story is a journey, a puzzle, a forest, and it’s all too easy to get lost in the woods. If you have a novel or short story that’s refusing to cooperate and need help finding your way, this could be the course for you. We will provide one-to-one feedback on process, character, style, structure and editing, though you will have plenty of time to work in solitude and to enjoy the company of fellow writers for additional empathy and support. This course is aimed at writers who have a work-in-progress. 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 1,500 words in advance to by 19 July 2019.

Single room price: £795
