On this tutored retreat Janice and Kerry will help you focus and test your fiction writing and ideas, helping you to look at craft and content and the relationship between what you want to say and how to successfully express it. It’s also hoped we might be able to share ideas on our own work, the craft of writing in general (is it true writing is ‘a lonely profession’?) and why we choose to do it at all. Suitable for people with some writing experience and/or with a work in progress.

At present, she lives in Lanarkshire.
