Non-Fiction: Tutored Retreat

Finding the heart of your non-fiction story

Monday November 18th - Saturday November 23rd 2019

The Hurst

Whether at the start, midway or nearing the completion of a draft of your work, there are strategies that can help you more fully realise the story you’ve been itching to tell. How do you become more secure in your writing voice and weave your research seamlessly into the writing? We’ll help to guide your prose – use of language, character and structure – to enable you to find the centre of your story and the best means of telling it. So that the tutors can be familiar with your work before the start of the course, you’re invited to submit up to 2,000 words of a work-in-progress to by 18 October 2019.

Single room price: £835
