West Dean College and Myriad Editions are pleased to announce the 2013 Writer’s Retreat Competition.

The prize is designed to allow the winner the chance to write undisturbed in the luxurious surroundings of West Dean College. The winner is entitled to a one week writing retreat, with full board, at West Dean, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty six miles north of Chichester, South East England.

The winner also has the chance to discuss their work with Myriad’s managing director, Candida Lacey. The winning entry can be an extract from any fiction work in progress – a novel or collection of short stories – and is chosen purely on the strength and promise of the writing by a panel of expert judges.
