#WriteMentor are running weekend workshops for writers looking to spend some time on their craft.

What will the writing weekends include?

The workshops will be planned by the workshop leaders and so will differ from venue to venue – check each individual venue for more specific details.

There will be visiting authors/agents/editors to each weekend (as availability permits) and these will be announced on a venue by venue basis.

What will the 1-2-1 involve?

You can either:

  • use the time to chat about your work/writing in general
  • discuss specific craft areas
  • practice your pitching
  • send in 2 pages (double-spaced, 12′) of your work to discuss (this may change on an individual basis depending on who the guest is)

Just let them know when you sign up.

PLEASE NOTE: we will limit the 1-2-1s to 10 places, so signing up early is imperative in order to ensure you get one of these highly sought after spots.

AND you must also buy a day ticket to do a 1-2-1. These are not available on their own.

How much will it cost?

Writers would have the option of doing both days at a cost of £200* or £100 for 1 day (includes lunch/resources). And there’s a 11% saving of £25 if you choose both days and a 1-2-1 (the 1-2-1 will be subject to availability).

*Except in London/Dublin which will be £220.
