After purchasing Innisfree House in March 2017, Sarah Leigh - writer, creative writing tutor and ex-literary agent - decided it would be the perfect place to hold residential creative writing courses.
Set in the heart of Dylan Thomas country in Llansteffan, just a couple of miles from Fern Hill, this beach house is the perfect spot to soak up the beauty of this West Wales landscape, and to draw inspiration for writing in a peaceful place.
Unlike other residential courses there will be a maximum of 6 course participants. Sarah has found teaching in small groups highly beneficial. The large amount of tutor time that each participant will receive on these courses is a huge bonus. Confidence grows quickly in small, intimate workshops (four, two-hour workshops in the mornings plus an extra evening class); Sarah writes alongside participants and everyone shares their work in a supportive, constructively critical environment.
During the week Sarah will spend the two individual tutorials looking in depth at each participant's writing and will make detailed editorial suggestions.
Sarah will read from her own work and also give a talk offering tips about how best to approach agents and an overview of the publishing process.
Innisfree House is a magical place. Please read on to discover more about the courses we have on offer.
