Following the success of our previous writing courses at Durhamhill, in the South-west Scottish countryside, we are running them for a third year in 2015 (places still available on the courses dated 17-19 March and 10-12 Nov 2015).
The tutors are Margaret Elphinstone and Mary Smith, both widely published writers and experienced tutors. The courses are great fun as well as instructive and inspiring.
We limit numbers to allow time for one-to-one sessions with the tutors as well as the group exercises. The fee is £295 and this covers food and accommodation in the 4-star Coach House. We offer a discount for multiple bookings. Participants are invited to arrive on the evening preceding the course.
Non-participating partners are welcome to attend for a reduced fee. Galloway has stunning country walks, with hills, lochs, woodland and coastline. There are also good golf courses. Anyone enthusiastic is welcome to help feed the pet llamas, or to have a trip in the motorcycle sidecar, in the evenings.
