Creative Writing Half Day Course for Beginners
With Jan Harvey
This is a half day course and is suitable for anyone who would like to be introduced to writing techniques from someone who has been writing in one way or another for most of her life. There will be lots of useful hints and tips, together with an opportunity to write a piece. All inspired by the wonderful setting.
Price: £49.50 includes all materials (unless otherwise specified) our fabulous Creative Green drinks, homemade cakes and biscuits (the eggs are kindly contributed by the resident hens at Clue Hill Farm and honey from our bees).
Numbers are generally limited to a maximum of 14 – this ensures that everyone is able to spend sufficient one-to-one time with the tutors. Our food ingredients are locally sourced and organic wherever possible. There will be an open fire with the logs harvested from our woods.
From 9.30 am till 1 pm.
Our tutors are all either personally known by us, or come highly recommended to us. They all live and practice their various disciplines within the local community and welcome any contact from attendees of our workshops. Please refer to their individual pages for full contact details.
Jan Harvey is a Life Coach, Writer, Artist and Tutor living and working in The Oxfordshire Cotswolds.
More about this Event Leader:
Jan’s passion is creative writing. Although she has written as a journalist for over twenty years she never got the opportunity to explore writing from the imagination. Her career as a writer had a fantastic kick start when her short story ‘Five Minutes Ago’ won the Hummer Prize for Creative Writing at Chipping Norton Festival.
Jan read the story to an audience of 150 people and it was warmly received. This spurred her on and having completed a course with Meg Harper on novel writing following this Jan is just about to complete her first novel. Jan is a regular at The Chipping Norton Literature Festival and a strong supporter of all things literary.
Her first novel is set both in Paris and The Dordogne. For publication dates please watch this space. Jan has written for a number of local magazines, internet blogs and e-books. She has been comissioned to write articles for Artists and Illustrators magazine. She has also illustrated a book called ‘Thank You Mr. Bosh, That’s Close Enough.” See also Jan Harvey.
