“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.

Writers of all levels are invited to this beautifully luxurious and spacious home to spend the day immersed in fiction writing. With interactive tutorials, frequent writing opportunities and a bucketload of tutor-led group feedback and mutual support, this is a wonderful opportunity to get away from the desk/kitchen/family/job, hang out with other enthusiastic writers, learn whilst writing and create a tidy collection of your own stories by the end of the eight month course.


The course comprises eight, monthly sessions (with a break for the summer). In each class we'll take a deep dive into different aspects of story writing, and promise to keep you

well fed and watered with all refreshments provided, not to mention a quality three course lunch created by our fabulous and talented host.


Our final class in December includes a sumptuous Christmas lunch, an Open Mike celebration of your favourite stories

from the course, and the presentation of your copy of the published anthology of the group's stories.


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

asap if you're interested. For further information:
