Join authors Robert Twigger (Angry White Pyjamas, Red Nile) and Jason Webster (A Body in Barcelona) as they reveal the secrets of story for the most innovative creative writing course offered in the UK. Develop ideas and finish that first, second, even third novel. Drawing on lessons that they still use, and together with over 20 books published, The Secrets of Story mixes classes and intensive individual sessions, tutoring 12 lucky participants to grow and develop their work. With the backdrop of the pristine beauty of South West Scotland, and a dozen bookshops on your doorstep, we dare you not to become an author.
