SHORT COURSE: Writing from life

Turning life’s raw material into good writing

Friday May 10th - Sunday May 12th 2019

Lumb Bank

This hands-on course is aimed at those who have a story based on their life they are longing to write but can’t decide how to go about it. Fiction? Non-fiction? Or something in between? We will help you get past the blank page and turn the raw material of life into good writing. We will explore how to produce non-fiction that has the suspense, character development and emotional depth of a good novel, and fiction that packs the same punch as a memoir.

Single room price: £515

Grants are available to help with the course fee
