Writing Weekend in Wales - a reminder

There are just a couple of weeks left before I teach the course on Contemporary Romance in Wales and I believe there are some places left on the course - so I thought I'd remind you about this Writing Weekend while there's still time for you to think about coming and to join me if you want.

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

Writing Novels for Children

How I'd love to take part but I'm afraid it's just too close to having spent a month here in Kent and would be too stressful.

It's seriously tempting, though.

Sharon it would be lovely to see you there - but I understand about the stress - you have to consider yourself

A pity you couldn't be there - I think we'll have fun as well as work
