Supporting Your Writing From Page to Page

Writing is a solitary process – but you don’t have to do it alone. Tutor led writing retreats and courses give you the chance to share that journey, while at the same time develop your writing skills.

Whether it’s your first short story or your tenth novel, a writing retreat can refresh and inspire.

Choose a residential tutor led retreat – or a day long course, to escape the pressure of everyday life and focus on your writing…

In 2020, we are introducing online retreats.

The first Fiction Tutors Online Writing Retreat will be held from July 24th to the 16th. This course is already BOOKED OUT.

Due to popular demand, this course will run a second time from August 14th to 16th.

This course would suit both new and more experienced writers, and will help you develop your work, looking at plot, character arc, setting and what your book is really about. We will also offer some insights on breaking into the highly competitive publishing world.

In all retreats, tutorials and exercises will help you cultivate the skills to complete and polish a manuscript to a publishable standard. We will look at your work and offer constructive advice on avoiding plot holes, saggy middles and other writing pitfalls.

Bring your questions to the online chats.
