Have space and time to write in the beautiful Andalucían village of Frigiliana. You will stay in the new boutique hotel, Millers of Frigiliana. Your double room is en-suite, there is a roof top terrace with hot tub and a bar. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day and in the evening we shall venture into the town and sample some of the best food in the area with views towards the sea.

You will have two one-to-one tutorials and two workshops with Roisin Heycock. Roisin has 15 years' publishing experience where she rose to publishing director at multi-award winning Quercus Children’s Books within Hachette. She has also commissioned for Faber & Faber, Macmillan Children’s Books and Oneworld. At those companies, she worked with talents such as Julia Donaldson, Axel Scheffler, Piers Torday, Ricky Gervais and David Roberts. Roisin has also worked for Golden Egg Academy.


Ever wanted to have your work read and professionally edited?  Here’s your chance. Let Roisin help you with your submission package, your plot problems, or your new idea. Submit up to 3000 words of your work and your synopsis by 3rd October.


You will have ample time to write, explore the old Moorish village on your doorstep, and the mountains beyond. Or simply curl up next to the log burner and read. The beach is only a 15 minute bus ride away if you feel like dipping your toes in the sea.
