This course will suit writers with a work in progress. If you need an intensive period to focus on something which is nearing completion, this is your chance. Paul and Amanda will be on hand to offer constructive advice in one-to-one tutorials on finishing and those final tweaks to plot and character to help make your work the best it can be.

Paul Murray has written three novels, The Mark and The Void, An Evening of Long Goodbyes and Skippy Dies. His stories have appeared in Granta, The Paris Review, the New York Times and elsewhere.

Amanda Smyth is Irish Trinidadian. Her first novel Black Rock won the Prix du Premier Roman Etranger, was shortlisted for NAACP award, McKitterick Prize, and selected as an Oprah Winfrey Summer Read. Her second novel A Kind of Eden was published in 2013. Her short stories have appeared in New Writing, London Magazine, The Times Literary Supplement and broadcast on BBC Radio 4. She is writing her third novel, While They Danced The Fire Burned, funded by Arts Council England.
