Event Details

A creative writing course to make your ambitions a reality!

Come and spend two days in leafy Surrey with food and like-minded company, to explore the world of children's books and how to approach the perfect illustrated story. Learn about the difference between picture books and illustrated fiction and how to avoid the typical pitfalls of first-time writers, practise your writing and editing skills, share your ideas, and make the most of some individual, one-to-one time with your tutor Lucy Courtenay, a published children's writer and editor of twenty years' experience.

Comments from previous course attendees:

"Your knowledge of children's books and authors is amazing and your recall so sharp."

"If only every Monday and Tuesday could be spent this way."

"I learned so much from your workshop and your book and came away thoroughly inspired and excited about putting it all into practice."
