Please contact us if you’d like to discuss the suitability of these courses for you.

Our day courses are suitable for those without much or any experience in the world of creative writing, as well as for those with some previous experience. In a friendly, welcoming setting, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from experienced tutors. Those who are curious about creative writing, or those looking for an opportunity to turn their hand to something new, are very welcome. If you wish to discuss this or any of our 2023 courses, and their suitability, please contact us for an informal chat.

Tea, coffee and snacks are available all day, and a light lunch is included in the fee. If you’re travelling from far away, or if you would like to stay the night, please ask us for availability and prices upon booking, or take a look at our Writers’ Retreat Cottage, Nant.
