This is exciting. In January I’m joining forces with top novelist and Guardian journalist Tiffany Murray to teach a creative writing course at the gorgeous Hurst in Shropshire. This house used to belong to the playwright John Osborne. Not my mate John Osborne who is published by Nasty Little Press. Although he’s coming mid week as our guest author. The blurb is below but basically Tiff and I will work on poetry and prose with our group for the week in a beautiful place.
Here comes the blurb …
Arvon, renowned for its residential creative writing retreats, is opening up its writing houses in January and February for a mini-season of winter courses. Start the year writing and spend an inspiring week in one of our beautiful houses, with the help of expert tuition from professional authors. Grants to help with course fees are available. Full details and booking information here.
Join us by the fireside and unlock your imagination for 2013.
