‘a fabulous weekend – learnt so much about my writing, should have done it years ago.’ Tina Gordon
Spend a weekend working with Deborah in her house in a historic village near Lancaster.
Bring the novel you are working on, or start one. The course will be tailored to suit you as an individual, and there will be a maximum of 3 students at any one time to ensure quality of tuition. The weekend will include, where appropriate, critiques of your writing, editing advice, a stimulus for further writing, a visit to a historic house, full board and accommodation.
Spacious rooms, delicious home-made food (all diets catered for), Wi- Fi, pleasant work-spaces. Residential courses run from Friday evening until Sunday late afternoon. Start and finish times by negotiation with participants. Reduced rates available for non-residents.
Contact Deborah for an information sheet and prices. Book more than three weeks ahead if you want to ensure adequate time for a sample of your work to be read.
Sorry, my 2017 courses are FULL.
