Short Story: Tutored Retreat

Exploring the magic of short stories

Monday October 7th - Saturday October 12th 2019

The Hurst

An up close and personal course aimed at the experienced short story writer, entirely made up of tutorials with an optional masterclass. We’ll set tasks and exercises focused on each writer’s particular practice and help you mine theme, character and emotional development. We’ll also discuss the role of place in fiction, routes to publication and the resources that can help you sustain yourself economically and creatively. And of course, this all takes place on the idyllic grounds of The Hurst, an ideal environment to explore the magic of short stories. Participants are invited to send up to 1,500 words of a short story to by 6 September 2019.

Single room price: £835

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.
