At Olvar Wood we offer a range of workshops and masterclasses for those who want to spend a day honing their skills as a writer.

Places in our day-long workshops and masterclasses are limited to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to gain meaningful feedback on their work and personal attention.


Workshops are designed for 15-20 participants, and include discussion, writing exercises, in-class feedback and loads of tips and tricks to help you develop your writing skills. Workshops are pitched towards beginners and writers who wish to refresh their understanding of fundamental aspects of the writing craft, or explore a new genre or form.


Masterclasses are designed for smaller groups - up to 10 people - and include a mix of discussion, feedback, and writing exercises. Masterclasses are pitched towards more experienced writers, who want to dig a little deeper and/or who have a project they are seeking support in developing. Masterclasses include an opportunity for you to gain feedback on a short work (up to 5000 words prose/2 pages poetry), which you will be asked to submit prior to the masterclass. The feedback includes a written, two-page report and in-class discussion.
