Narrative Drive: Inscribe Fiction Weekender

Interested in an inspiring, intensive, creative writing long weekend? Working on your fiction? Developing your critical and editing skills? Do you want support to boost the crafting of your writing?

Attend Inscribe's residential fiction weekend at the recently renovated Debden House, on the edge of Epping Forest! This is a wonderful opportunity to gather with other writers from around the country, who are your creative peers, to spend an intensive two and a half days on your craft.

Our guest tutor Jacob Ross will offer a workshop informed by his immensely popular and highly regarded technical creative approach to crafting fiction, which examines the building blocks of stories and how they work together to produce strong memorable narratives. 

Jacob Ross is a highly respected novelist, short story writer, editor, creative writing tutor and Peepal Tree’s associate fiction editor. His recent police-procedural novel, The Bone Readers, won the inuagural Jhalak Prize for Book of the Year. Judge, poet Musa Okwonga said it was “by turns thrilling, visceral and meditative, and always cinematic”, while author Catherine Johnson added that it “effortlessly draws together the past and the present, gender, politics and the legacy of colonialism in a top quality Caribbean set crime thriller”
