This weekend workshop will be concentrating on structure in a longer piece of fiction, with particular emphasis on the importance and function of the midpoint. The protagonist has reached the deepest part of the woods and now she has to get out again. He has found the elixir, but he doesn’t yet know how to handle it. She has committed the act from which there is no going back, and now it’s time to face the consequences. Through group teaching sessions and one-to-one sessions, this workshop is aimed to get you home again!

(Each writer will submit a one page working synopsis.)

Susannah Waters works as a freelance editor for many best-selling and debut novelists in both the commercial and literary genres. She was a tutor on the Creative Writing Programme at New Writing South and has also taught for the Arvon Foundation and The Literary Consultancy. She has published two novels: Long Gone Anybody (BlackSwan) and Cold Comfort (Doubleday/Black Swan).




Date: Retreat runs from 4pm Friday to 4pm Sunday. All rooms are single occupancy with your own desk. Limited to 9 places – book early to avoid disappointment.

Cost: £310 fully inclusive of tuition, accommodation, and all meals.

Venue: The High Weald Retreat Centre is set in the High Weald AONB. Our beautiful gardens include many peaceful spots for writing as well as a natural swimming pond. We are 6 miles from Rye and 10 miles from Hastings.
