Writers! Fancy writing in a house on a hill? Looking to learn more about how writers draw inspiration from their surroundings? Like to find a peaceful corner of a garden to write? And all with home-cooked meals?
Then a weekend course at Kettle Knowe near Castle Douglas in Dumfries & Galloway is for you or your writing group.
Best-selling crime novelist and creative writing tutor John Dean is to run workshops at the 19th century house on the weekends of July 6/7 and August 24/25, 2019.
John, author of 17 novels, currently published by London-based The Book Folks, and the creator of DCI John Blizzard and DCI Jack Harris, will run a course based around sense of place.
The cost is £95 per person, including catering, and you can find out more by emailing Inscribe Media Limited, of which John is a director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing 07889 554931. The course is non-residential, but advice can be offered on local B&Bs.
