I’m very much looking forward to next term: the beginning of my RLF Fellowship at Aston University.
There’s an exciting new partnership between Cheltenham Festivals and First Story, to bring the benefits of First Story to Gloucestershire. As part of this initiative, I am going to be working in a school in Cheltenham, which involves workshops with a group of students over two terms, and producing an anthology of their writing.
Here’s the setting for writing workshops at the Arvon Foundation at the Hurst, where I tutored a course at the beginning of July. The Hurst has been completely renovated – it’s an extraordinary place in a beautiful setting, and well worth visiting for a writing course.
