Three weeks to write at Cove Park

coveparkcowThanks to Birkbeck and their Sophie Warne Fellowship, I was able to go to Cove Park where I finished the first draft of my novel. It’s a wonderful place to write – for the peace and the camaraderie, and the widen open spaces, and the spooky submarines in the sea loch, and the fact it rains almost every day so you will not be tempted to sunbathe instead of getting down to it. I also got to meet film makers and sculptors and potters and sound artists who were resident at the same time. The team who run Cove Park are incredibly helpful and good fun. Here’s the view from my writing pod.
