‘Seeing the Wood for the Trees’ is for anyone with a novel in progress. Have you reached a point where you’re not sure how to carry on? A stage where the details of your story and the overall picture don’t seem to fit together? Do you need a thread to help you through the maze? Or do you have an idea in progress in your head, but can’t start, can’t get the words on paper?


If you would like feedback on your work from an experienced tutor and other writers this is the place for you. You will have the opportunity to share up to 5,000 words and should be willing to dive in and discuss other writers’ work as well as your own. There will be deadlines, but masses of encouragement too.
