Writing Course in November

Seeing as I've been talking about helping would-be writers of Romance, I thought this would be a good time to mention the writing course that I'm teaching on in November.

RESIDENTIAL NOVEL WRITING WEEKEND




I will be running a Weekend Course on The Contemporary Romance at this event.

DATE: Friday 10th - Sunday 12th November 2006
PLACE: The Fishguard Bay Hotel, Fishguard, Pembrokeshire Wales
COST: £199 fully inclusive

This weekend is run by the wonderful Writers Holiday — the people who run a full week Writers' Holiday in Caerleon in the summer. This Winter Novel Workshop is held at the Fishguard Bay Hotel.

Nestling in rich woodland above Fishguard Harbour and overlooking some of the most beautiful and spectacular coastline in Wales, guests can view Lower Town in the distance across the Bay the setting for Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, when stars Glynis Johns, Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole and many others were in residence. The Hotel was also the base for the filming of Moby Dick. In 1979 the former Great Western Railway Hotel was designated as a Building of Historic and Architectural Interest.


The hotel offers an atmosphere second to none with oak panelled walls, high ceilings and an air of Victorian splendour combined with warm hospitality, superb service and every comfort. Writers' Holiday invite you to join us for the first of what we hope will be annual 'Writers' Winter Warmer Weekends'. The weekend opens on the Friday evening with a leisurely dinner followed by a short Meet the Workshop Leaders session — the rest of the event will consist of six Workshop sessions and time for informal chats in the luxurious lounge.

Single, double or twin roomed accommodation is available so you can bring your partner. All meals are provided plus tea and coffee. The only other money you will need will be to buy a drink in the bar or purchase a book in the Bookroom.

Courses this time are
The Historical Novel
The Crime Novel
Contemporary Romance
Writing Novels for Children

Further details and booking forms can be found here

All guests booking in the next four weeks will receive £10 discount and if they can introduce someone else (who will also receive the £10 discount) they will get an additional £10 discoount for anyone - and everyone - booking and quoting their name as the introductory contact

Maybe I'll see you there?

Hi Kate,

I am looking very forward to meeting you again and the course in November - can't wait to absorb every ounce of knowledge and wisdom I can in the time.

Following on from your previous post the 12 POINT GUIDE is one of my favorite books on writing. I read it before I started my second manuscript and it just made everything so much clearer for me, very excited about doing a course based on it.

I'd absolutely love to take part but it's too soon after a long break in Kent and too close to Christmas to be practical for me. Maybe next time. Good luck with it, anyway. I'm sure it'll be wonderful.

Wish I didn't live so far away, Kate (Canada). It sounds like a wonderful course and a great location.

I wish... Hubby and I came very close to booking this course. Unfortunately, the timing isn't working for us.

It would've been ideal because DH could've gone to the historical workshop, which would have left me to enjoy your famous Hugh in a towel projection! Maybe next time...
