Whether or not 'everyone has a book in them' and extricating it and tying it down onto the page is one of the main problems aspiring novelists face. Phillippa Pride is an editor who wants to help get it out of you, and she’s chosen charming surrounds in which to perform the operation.

Huzur Vadisi translates to ‘Peaceful Valley’, suggesting the appropriateness of her choice. On Turkey’s ‘turquoise coast’, the luxury ‘yurts’ complete with and electricity supply and comfy beds, are surrounded by forests of pine, olive and fig trees. There you spend two hours each morning training with Phillippa, who comes with recommendations from Stephen King, among others, and an hour and a half in the late afternoon. The time in between is your own, to swim, walk or dine out your writer’s blocks until your book starts coming.

As well as learning exercises in creativity, Phillippa also takes you through practical tips for writes and gives an insiders view of the publishing world.
