Writing retreat in the spectacular Bernese Oberland, Switzerland
24 September at 08:00 – 30 September at 17:00 EDT
Make time and space for you and your craft in idyllic Switzerland. Enjoy writing in inspiring surroundings in the supportive company of like-minded people, and enhance your day with a walk in nature. Your tutor will guide you through daily workshops and discussions on key elements of writing, such as characterisation, plot, point of view, sense of place and dialogue. The final session will offer a practical approach to various stages of editing. The daily schedule incorporates private writing time. You can view a sample timetable on the website.
Hosted by an author and creative-writing tutor with years of experience (teaching all age groups and levels: from secondary-school pupils to students on Creative Writing undergraduate and Masters degrees).
Accommodation will be at a luxury apartment in a modern chalet, in a village at approx. 1070 metres above sea-level. It’s an easy walk from the flat to the local cafes, shop and public transport. You’ll have your own space: a double room put to single-occupancy use, with stunning views of the mountains (including Wetterhorn, Wellhorn, Engelhörner and Eiger) and high in natural light.
The course fee is inclusive of tuition, accommodation and meals.
