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. 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 am led two at Ashburnham in 2019 and two were planned for 2020. The Covid situation permitting the October one should now go ahead (see Holidays news page)
Two more are planned for 2021
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 led the last there April 1-5, 2019. See Holidays news page .
