Writing Course June, Wales

I'm running a writing course at Capel Bethel Fri-Sat-Sun 19th-20th-21st June


The Chapel can cater for 24 people during the day, sleeps 12 in bedrooms, can sleep more.

There is a B&B next door. If the course is fully subscribed and people choose to stay there the costs of the course would be slightly reduced.

The Course

The intention to produce to near-finished stories from scratch and
to help with improving any existent ones.

Very useful for entering Bridport

Post course there will be another 9 days to tidy if necessary (if entering Bridport)
but the aim is that two stories will be finished structurally and blue-pencilled, so virtually done

The courses normally tend to be very "full-on" and for those who can hack the
pace there will be writing-talk from 7AM through to the early hours

For this course there would be writing breaks, for "relief"

If you haven't been on one of these courses and experienced just how much can change
ask around. Maybe some of the people receiving this could respond with comments?

The Chapel is fantastic. There are two double beds, six beds as bunks, two twins
and 3-4 double sofa beds... The French Oak table seats 12...

There FIVE stereos, one has an iPod Dock

There's 42" Flat (HD) screen, DVD and Blu-Ray Player (I use video occasionally to illustrate a point)

Bar Billiards Table, thousands of quality books, hundreds on writing prose and poetry

If you think that a full blue-pencil feedback on a 5K story would cost you £50-£90 the course is very cheap

£120 for the two days £150 for the three, but you are FAR better off arriving Thursday night and doing all three days

I promise you that you will be able to start 2-3-4 stories, will learn a load, can fix those stories that haven't quite worked.

I will be writing fresh alongside you all
