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 2019, the Fiction Tutors Autumn Writing Retreat will be held from October 11th to the 13th. This course would suit both new and more experienced writers, and will help you develop your work, looking at plot, character arc, setting and point of view.

There will be three weekend tutored retreats in 2020.

Early Spring Retreat – 31st January-2nd February 2020

Summer Retreat – 12th-14th June 2020

Autumn Retreat – 30th October-1st November 2020

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; we will tailor the content to fit your needs.
