Starting to write

Today I finally plucked up the courage to post an application form that I’ve been carrying around for ages.

It’s a residential writing course for beginners that’ll be held in September by the Arvon foundation. The tutors for the course are proper published authors and everything.

Starting to Write: Telling Tales
“For people interested in writing prose of all kinds. We will explore the link between real life and imagination. If you’re willing to experiment, you should finish the course better equipped to tell the truth and to make things up, and understand how close the two things often are.”

(No idea if they will have any places; my courage did not stretch to phoning up and asking simple questions.)

UPDATE: they didn’t have any places :o(
I’m on the waiting list though – let’s hope there’s a cancellation!

ANOTHER UPDATE (July): I had a call to say there had been a couple of cancellations and would I like a place? Now I’m all nervous about it again – but can’t wait!
