I was wondering if any of the TB crew have experience of the Swanwick summer writing programme. I am pondering signing up for it but, although it does not appear to be the most expensive writing retreat/course available, I am somewhat uncomfortable to spend £500-£600 on it without good reason as that sum would allow me to take my wife away for a few days somewhere nice. (And it's our 30th in September, too)
Wife is happy for me to go but, it seems a lot just for me, although she has suggest it could be a 50th present for me.
Any views/reports/experiences on Swanwick welcomed.
