Short Story: Tutored Retreat
Exploring the magic of short stories
Re-energising your writing and supercharging your novel
Monday August 5th - Saturday August 10th 2019
Where are you with your novel? Has it been too long since you’ve had some really focused feedback? Or some detailed analysis of your story, characters, structure and voice? Or some insightful suggestions about new approaches you might try? The middle of a novel can be a very lonely place. Whether your draft is the final or the first, we will help you get it much closer to what you know it can be. You’re invited to submit up to 2,000 words of a work-in-progress to email@example.com by 6 July 2019.
