YOUNG ADULT FICTION WORK-IN-PROGRESS

Getting on with it

Monday October 5th - Saturday October 10th 2020

Lumb Bank

So you’ve started your novel. Maybe it’s just an outline and a few hundred words; maybe you’re polishing up the final manuscript. Our aim is to help you get it done – to move it forward and make it real. Writing a novel can be a long and arduous business, and it’s easy to lose your enthusiasm and sense of what you’re trying to create. Let us help you foster that spirit of inspiration, creation and discovery that makes writing such a joy. By giving you time to get on with it in a supportive atmosphere, surrounded by others with the same aim and your tutors to guide you, we hope to put some real fire and drive into your work and help you bring the vision of your imagination forward into the light.
