Already excited about Halloween…

I’m over the (blood-red) moon to have been asked to co-host a course this October , ‘Writing into the Dark‘, with incredible author and tutor, Anstey Harris, at her beautiful writers’ retreat in South West Scotland.

We’ll be providing a series of playful and practical creative writing workshops exploring character, setting and things that go bump in the night.

The retreat, running from the 24th to  October 29th, will be fully catered (from afternoon tea & supper on Monday till breakfast on Saturday – and lots of cake in between) with a vegetarian menu (although other dietary needs can be met).

The group will be taught from 10am till 12:30/1pm every day with the afternoons free for walks, group activities, or writing. There will be a programme of evening entertainment including a ‘night walk’ looking at the sights and sounds of the night-time outdoors, and readings. There will also be the opportunity to submit a sample of your work for one-to-one feedback.

If this sounds like your cup of tea (or personal poisoned chalice), the cost of the course is £750 and places can be secured with a £250 deposit (email email hidden; JavaScript is required for more details). There is also a shared room at £525 per person.

You might also like to bring along  a‘ haunted object’ of your choice…
