New Story Surgery Weekend!

11th/12th November 2023


Back by popular demand!


The Story Surgery Weekends for October and November 2022 and February 2023 were sell outs. 20 writers grappled with their characters and plot in good company and went away, not only enthused and encouraged, but having made real progress with their stories.


"It was like having our own writers room". 


I honestly don't think there is anything else like this on offer - an opportunity to grapple with your story with the support of other writers. If there is, please let me know because I'll happily sign up for it myself.


The weekends are so stimulating and productive that many participants return to follow-up, either developing their work-in-progress or with new projects.  Each course offers a mixture of new and familiar faces and an exciting array of stories to share.


Check out the course content here and contact me to reserve your place.


"Zosia’s courses achieve a rare balance of intensive learning and breakthrough moments with enough coffee and cake on the side to make the whole thing feel like fun." 


"If you want to meet new writer friends, get into the nuts and bolts of story mechanics and work out your next plot development move in a supportive environment - definitely go for it - your future work will be so much better for it."
