You’re invited: Stow-on-the-Wold Writing Weekend

 In Creative Writing Courses, Invitations

Explore the mysteries and the craft of creating story with a group of like-minded souls in that most charming of Cotswold market towns, Stow-on-the-Wold.

Far from our everyday preoccupations and responsibilities, we’ll talk, brainstorm and write – furiously – with just one aim in mind: to hone our writing skills.


The idea is that you book in from 4 or 4:30pm on the afternoon of Friday 7 June. We’ll meet at 6:00pm for a drink and supper (with an introductory chat about story and a writing exercise thrown in).

Saturday will be a little bit of “theory”, a dash of brainstorming – and writing (with feedback) all the way, with a break for lunch in the town which offers an opportunity for a writing exercise on the hoof. In the evening, we’ll repair to a local hostelry for a festive writers’ dinner.

For Sunday, rinse and repeat, with lunch and a final exercise before we cast off our writers’ mantles (if that’s possible after 48 hours of creative excitement) and scatter.


Our accommodation will be in rooms in three gorgeous townhouses on Sheep and Park Streets in Stow, offering single or double rooms. The workshop sessions will held in one of the townhouses and in the meeting room of a local pub.  You’ll be able to write in either of the meeting spaces, your accommodation or since we’ll have the delights of Stow-on-the-Wold literally on our doorstep you can slip away to one of the many coffee shops dotted around the square.
