These are not courses but real holidays with an opportunity to stretch your creative side in a friendly and relaxed environment. Chris provides themed inspiration along with a wide choice of workshop exercises - or you can do your own thing, so long as you write something during the day and read it out to a small group. You can write in whatever genre or style you like and be anything from complete beginner to experienced writer. We normally laugh a lot and get to know and trust each other quickly.
I have led nearly 40 writing holidays over the years. Details for the latest are on the Holidays news page
I led a creative writing break at Ashburnham in April 2017 and will lead one 10-14 September 2018 (see Holidays news page)
Ashburnham has its own estate with gardens, several lakes, even a church!
Plenty of places to write at Ashburnham...

Another place where I’ve led many happy creative writing holidays over the years is Lee Abbey on the spectacular Exmoor coast of north Devon. I’ll be leading another there sometime in 2019.
