Ever dreamed of writing a book? Publishing your own poetry? Cracking the secrets of teaching creative writing to kids? Maybe you just want to write your memoirs. We offer residential and non-residential writing courses for aspiring writers of all ages and abilities as well as intensive revision courses for students preparing for national qualifications, delivered by established author Susy McPhee and Editorial Associate Helen Lewis at stunning training locations in the Scottish Highlands and Southern France.
