Narrative Structure 

31st October to 5th November 2016

Sorry, you missed it!

We’ll be announcing plans for further retreats in 2017 soon

Tanya 167Narrative structure is an intensive week for writers with a substantial draft of a work-in-progress, whether a novel or longer memoir. Morning workshops will provide you with the tools to plan and revise your structure, identify your plot points and theme, and use back story and sub plot effectively.

Afternoon one to ones with two tutors will help you trouble-shoot your narrative and determine your next steps in developing your draft. If your story lacks a coherent structure at the start of the week we guarantee you will be clearer on the way forward by the end.

The cost of this retreat is £655 for a double room and £575 for a twin room. We believe that every writer needs a room of one’s own, so nobody will expect you to share, but if you are travelling with a writer friend and prefer to share a room the cost per head is reduced to £495 for a double or £450 for a twin.

We are delighted to announce that Jenny Alexander will be our guest author for this retreat. Jenny will join us for dinner on the Wednesday evening, and provide insight into her own writing journey. On Thursday morning, Jenny will run a workshop on Plotting and Pace, which promises to be highly informative. Read the full week’s programme here.
