Hybrid Writing

Writing in uncharted waters

Monday October 7th - Saturday October 12th 2019

Lumb Bank

Dive across genre, break out of boxes, prise your writing open, let your words fall in whatever shape they will. It’s tough to avoid labels as a writer, those we put on our own work and those stuck on by editors and readers. Is what you’ve written fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose, an essay or a short story, criticism, journalism, creative writing? We will never fence you in. On this course, we embrace the peeling off of labels, revel in border-crossings, slip in slashes (poetry/essay or memoir/criticism, say), and slide across discipline. No experience necessary, come as you are.

Single room price: £795
Shared room price: £745
