Welcome to the Writers Summer School!

We are a residential writing conference for creatives (18+) with a full

programme of courses, workshops, speakers, activities and entertainment. 

Why Swanwick?

... Because it's an ideal location to inspire your creativity, learn, enhance your craft and mingle with fellow writers.
