Aspiring and published writers are invited to a retreat to be held at Richmond Estate near Rai Valley from November 9 to 11.
Tutor Sally Astridge, of Nelson, is a published romance writer with degrees in commercial fiction and English literature.
Topics she will cover include where to start when you want to write a fiction or non-fiction book and point of view.
People will also have plenty of time to write.
The New Zealand Society of Authors is running the retreat, which costs $190 for members and $210 for non-members, including meals and accommodation at the old forestry camp near Rai Valley.
Registrations close on November 5.
