Short Story: Tutored Retreat

Diving deep

Monday October 29th - Saturday November 3rd 2018

Lumb Bank

This short story course is designed for intermediate to advanced writers. So how, in writing something so economic and honed, can you create an expansive experience for your reader? Writing a short story requires mastery of dozens of individual skills. On this retreat you will have independent time and space to focus on your writing, and, with the individual attention of two experienced tutors, you will discover the skills that make the difference between a good short story and a great one. Participants are invited to submit one or two stories, with a total submission length of no more than 2,000 words, to by 8 October 2018.

Single room price: £770
