West Dean College

I am a short course tutor at West Dean College, near Chichester, West Sussex. West Dean College is a centre of excellence and a unique place to study. The 19th century house is surrounded by acres of gardens and views of the South Downs, providing wonderful tranquillity and inspiration for writers.
 
My courses are suitable for writers of all ability levels. Plenty of support and feedback is provided.
