Spelt Nature Writing School

We are excited to introduce to you the next stage of the Spelt five year plan: The Spelt Nature Writing School. All Spelt courses are zoom based. The school offers three terms per year, each term lasts three months. Spelt is offering four week courses, weekend workshops and regular writing groups led by experienced facilitators with excellent publishing track records.

We are making a commitment to pay our facilitators a proper fee, and we are making a commitment to provide one free bursary place for each course. If you feel you might be eligible for a bursary place, drop us a line at speltmagazine@gmail.com. You won’t be asked to prove your eligibility.

Spelt remains unfunded and so courses may be cancelled if we don’t get enough bookings to cover facilitator fees.

If you have any questions please email Spelt at Speltmagazine @gmail.com

Thank you for being a part of the Spelt story.
