Following on from our sold-out creative writing workshop in the spring, we are thrilled to announce the next Ignite the Spark, quite simply for anyone who has ever dreamt about writing. A one-day workshop dedicated to uncovering your ideas and getting them down on the page. The course is run by Booksmiths – Rebecca Whitney and Alex Hourston, two published, local authors – and set in the beautiful surroundings of our vineyards, with lunch prepared by the fabulous Chalk restaurant and a glass of Wiston bubbles to end the day.

The course takes guests through a process of inspiration and idea generation. We’ll explore the building blocks of story, examine what makes a great scene, the importance of setting and how to create believable dialogue. We are output focused, so everyone will begin a piece of writing and work on it throughout the day, building and amending as they go, providing a springboard to continue their writing journey into the future.

A few words from one of our many satisfied guests: ‘Thank you so much for a brilliant day! It was so interesting and insightful, I came away very inspired … so well planned, with an easy, casual vibe, I felt very at home and not at all out of my depth. I’m buzzing with ideas.’  Catherine.

Becky and Alex offer guests a ten-minute one-to-one at the end of the day to talk through next writing steps or give you further insight into our wealth of industry and creative knowledge.
