The real Room of One's Own
For the last eight years Sarah Hosking has provided aspiring female writers over 40 with a place to think, get away from it all, and write award-winning books. But currently not enough good candidates are applying to make use of the cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon. Jenni meets Sarah, founder of the Hosking Houses Trust, to ask her what she wants from her writers-in-residence, and what writers gain from the experience. She is also joined by Louise Foxcroft, who completed 'Hot Flushes, Cold Science - a History of the Modern Menopause' whilst staying at the retreat.
