Summer Sundays

Our Summer Sundays are now complete for 2019 but we will be publishing dates for 2020 soon.

Mylor Yacht Club is the venue for our Summer Sundays: one-day retreats in stunning coastal surroundings, with opportunities to learn, write and enjoy the company of other writing enthusiasts. All refreshments and a delicious lunch are included. 

2019 workshops

Find your story through theme: Sunday 19 May

What is a story really about? What goes on beneath the surface of your characters and the situations they find themselves in? This workshop will help you explore the themes that drive your story and make them the driving force in a powerful narrative.

Find your story through character: Sunday 16 June 

Some characters walk off the page and into our lives; others need coaxing into three dimensional life. This workshop gives you tips and techniques to help you create characters that are truly compelling, and generate stories that are authentic and believable.

Find your story through setting: Sunday 14 July August

Learn how to use the senses and effective imagery to create powerfully atmospheric settings that ignite powerful stories. This workshop will enable you to create settings that give rise to intriguing characters and situations.
