Spend a week learning how to make your writing sing with truth.

Join me in a luxury cottage in the North Yorkshire Moors. We’ll write, explore, and learn from each other. By the end of the week your writing will have a life of its own.

You might be working on your first novel, or writing short stories, or looking for some space to help you decide whether you want to write at all. You might be trying out a first-person narrator, or writing from multiple viewpoints. Maybe your dialogue doesn’t feel right. This retreat is all about making your writing ring true.

Whatever your level and experience, there is much in this course to learn and explore. You’ll complete writing exercises, examine techniques, and discuss what you want to achieve with your writing. And of course you will have plenty of time and space to think and write!

As one of a group of five students you’re guaranteed time and attention.

Come along for tutored writing sessions, 1:1 feedback, the company of fellow writers, great food, and wonderful surroundings. Write, think, sleep, explore, and return to the world refreshed, inspired and raring to go.
