Arvon | residential creative writing courses and retreats UK

“I’ve never been surrounded by so many people .. who want to write with such passion.”


ABOUT US MORE

Arvon runs an annual programme of residential creative writing courses and retreats for schools, groups and individuals, at four rural writers’ houses in the UK. Tutored by leading authors, the five day courses offer a powerful mix of workshops and individual tutorials, with time and space to write, free from the distractions of everyday life. The courses are in a wide range of genres, including fiction, poetry, screenwriting and playwriting. Grants are available to help with course fees.

We are very sad to announce that John Moat, co-founder of Arvon with John Fairfax, has died. Ruth Borthwick, Arvon’s Chief Executive, writes about his remarkable legacy here.
