"The Reading Room weekends are a truly unique and special experience"

Booking Information

Creative Weekends - £150

I run weekend courses in response to demand, so if you are interested, do get in touch.  My courses are unique in that we explore, in depth, the story you are developing.  We discuss structure, plot, character, dialogue and editing, with different courses focusing on different areas.  Some writers have begun to return regulary with work in progress.

The price includes copious quantities of coffee and a variety of teas and cake. 


There are a number of excellent pubs and cafes providing lunch in the town centre.  Courses are structured with a longer break over lunch on Saturday, to allow plenty of time to explore the town's shops and cafes, should you wish to do so.  Alternatively, you may choose to remain at The Reading Room to write or read.  You are welcome to use the kitchen facilities to prepare your lunch.  There is an excellent selection of books you are welcome to browse and borrow over the weekend.


On Saturday evening I book an evening meal at a local pub, at a reasonable price, which all are welcome to attend. 



Pay What You Can Scheme


If, for whatever reason, the fee is prohibitive, there are places available on a Pay What You Can basis. Simply e-mail me with your suggested contribution.


The Reading Room is situated on the first floor, with access via staircase with a handrail.  Toilet facilities and kitchen are on the same floor.



I can recommend a range of good quality accommodation at a reasonable price. Ulverston has a number of excellent B&Bs and self catering accommodation.


For those on a tight budget there are a limited number of places available on a first come, first served basis in friendly Homestay rooms at £15 per person per night, including a simple breakfast. A list can be sent on request.
