Join tutor-led writing sessions
You can start your day by joining fellow participants at the optional tutor-led writing exercises. If you wish to make the most of the opportunities available, there are plenty of chances to share ideas and experiences, but the days are yours for self-directed work on your own projects in this inspirational setting.
Located just a short distance from Cambridge, Madingley Hall, renowned for its award-winning cuisine, is set in quiet and idyllic grounds. The picturesque gardens (designed by the famous ‘Capability’ Brown), are perfect for strolling in and letting the imagination wander; the historic Hall is conducive to quiet study. Bedrooms are all en suite, with writing desks and free wi-fi; a quiet room will also be available to all writers.
If your writing would benefit from some fine-tuning and professional feedback, why not sign up for a 1:1 supervision with one of our specialist tutors? These sessions can be booked at an extra charge: we will contact you regarding these extra sessions.
