Learning with the best

Fancy a bit of escape and a lot of writing? The Dingle Writing Courses are running again this year and the cast of tutors is as impressive as ever. If writing for children is your thing, you'll be in for a treat as Kevin Crossley-Holland (of the Arthur trilogy fame, among other excellent books) will be looking after you. Here's his description of his own course:
Children's fiction can be affectionate, social, mythic or simply playful. This course will focus on breaking new ground rather than work in progress. It will be a shared experience of rapid exercises which celebrate language and the imagination. It will also examine how to tell, retell and use motifs from traditional tale.



Kevin's course will take place from the 8th to the 10th of October. All the details on this and other classes (starting to write, poetry and fiction) can be found here.
