“Thoroughly enjoyed the course and feel I have learnt an incredible amount. I would definitely do another.”F. Wood, Nov '16, Fiction Writing.


“Jackie's teaching is inspirational and progressive.”C. J Walker, Nov '16, Short Story Writing.



My next Short Story Writing course

(which includes a bucket load of feedback,

mutual support, inspiration and technique), begins in

January 2020. You'll bring one short story to each of the nine monthly sessions (with a break over the summer). A loose theme and specfic element of writing will be introduced during our tutorial in class and we'll use various writing prompts to get you started - after that, the story is all yours!


In a beautifully luxurious and spacious environment, over looking the river, our own chef will provide a hearty lunch as well as constant flow of tea and coffee during the day. This is a great opportunity to get away from the desk, learn whilst writing and create a tidy collection of your own short stories.


Class size is small: max six people, so please enquire

early if you're interested. For further information:
