“I’ve never been surrounded by so many people .. who want to write with such passion.”
Arvon, the UK’s leading creative writing charity, runs an annual programme of residential creative writing courses and retreats for schools, groups and individuals. The five-day courses, tutored by leading authors, are held at three beautiful rural writers’ houses and include 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.
Miranda Peake blogs about her writing journey, from Arvon to winning the Mslexia Poetry Prize, including a poem she wrote at Totleigh Barton.

where I’m to call you...
