Creative Writing Summer School
WEA course with Sally Baker and Anna Turner

Date: July 14, 2018

Time: 9.45am - 4.30pm

Location: Hebden Bridge Town Hall

This is a day of creative writing, with options to attend poetry and prose workshops. The theme of People and Places will be interpreted in different ways, and will include looking at the history of the local built environment and our place within it; a sense of place and how we inhabit spaces.

Writing Fearlessly
A Tutored Writing Retreat

Start date: July 23, 2018

End date: July 27, 2018

Location: Northern College/Wentworth Castle

Join Anna Chilvers and Alison Taft at the magnificent House of Wentworth Castle, the Grade 1 listed home of Northern College and give yourself the gift of writing fearlessly.

Anna and Alison are both published writers and inspirational creative writing tutors. They have worked together on many retreats and are passionate about enabling writers to find their voice and express themselves through the written word.

The course includes morning workshops, one to one tutorials, focus groups and writing time.  Writers will be encouraged to share work with each other. There will be guidance on how and where to submit your work and we will be joined by a surprise guest author on one of the evenings.

Starting Monday evening with dinner, the course includes full board and accommodation in single en-suite bedrooms. The course ends with a celebration of the work produced on the Thursday night before checking out on Friday morning.

The cost for the course is £425.
