STARTING TO WRITE SHORT COURSE

Getting started and keeping going

Friday October 30th - Sunday November 1st 2020

The Hurst

A short, intense burst of support and creativity to get you started on your writing. How do you begin? And once you’ve begun how do you keep going? The weekend will be focused and enjoyable, helping you to find your voice and your confidence in a supportive, encouraging environment. We’ll use fun and inventive exercises covering character and structure and using the surrounding landscape to stimulate and kick-start that book, poem or play that’s been burning a hole in your pocket. This is a weekend to help you play, discover and develop, and, above all, get writing.

Single room price: £540
