The weekend will be rounded off with a celebratory evening of readings (with optional wine drinking).
Everything kicks off at 9 am BST on Saturday 5 September and finishes at 9 pm on Sunday 6 September. Participants can join in as many or as little of the two days’ activities as they want.
The Final Chapter builds on the success of The Quarantine Chapter – a three-day writing event that took place during the lockdown in May 2020.
Sarah Tyley, co-host of L’atelier des écrivains – The Writers’ Workshop, France, says: “Coronavirus has scuppered our plans to host our sell-out writing workshop here in southwest France. We didn’t want people to miss out on the opportunity to learn from Helen Cross, so we are bringing the event online instead.
Everyone who experiences her tuition always tells us how much value they get from it and so this next event is packed with masterclasses and feedback sessions from Helen as well as all the usual creative inspiration and laughter.”
