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 2018, the Fiction Tutors Spring writign retreat will be held from the 16th to the 18th of March. This weekend retreat is aimed at new writers and published authors who are starting a new work and need to focus on story structure, characters and writing basics.
