Details

This full-day workshop is led by Suffolk-based landscape writer and tutor, Liz Ferretti, an Arts Council award winner, who has worked with hundreds of writers across the UK.

The day will be spent in guided exploration and writing, with a lunch-time writer’s surgery with your tutor. Participants will gain privileged access to the Ness, as the site will be closed to the general public. Suitable for writers at all levels of experience, working in any genre. Bring only equipment you can carry for long distances unaided and sufficient food and clothing to enable you to work comfortably outside most of the day in exposed conditions. Tea and coffee provided.
