Competition: Win a place on the 8 Month Novel Course

We love a comp at Retreat West! The latest is to win a place on the online 8 Month Novel course starting in January 2017. Deadline for entries is 20th November 2016.

It’s a mix of creative writing course through exercises and readings and 1-1 mentoring from Amanda Saint, and by the end you’ll have a short first draft to go away and work with, along with an editorial report to help you develop it. The course is for a maximum of 5 writers to work together at a time and there’s an online forum space where you can chat and share your work with each other. You can get the full info on it here.

You can win one of the places on the course by entering the competition – all you need to do is pay the competition entry fee and submit up to 500 words pitching you and your story idea and why you’d like to do the course. Full T&Cs below.

A winner will be chosen from all entries received by the closing date and will get to join the online, collaborative course in January.

Last time 2 writers won a place – Poppy Peacock and Jacqui Stearn – and they start their course next week. Although the competition is just for one of the places on the course, I found it impossible to choose between them so you never know, this could happen again for the January course too!

Competition T&Cs

  • You can enter as many times as you like with different novel ideas but must submit them separately and pay the competition entry fee of £15 each time
