Arvon has a range of courses and retreats aimed at writing for younger audiences – from picture books and children’s fiction, to Young Adult fiction.
“I arrived at the beginning of the week wondering whether I might be a writer or even if I could write. But when I left, not only did I feel I could write, I knew that’s what I was going to do next.” – Piers Torday, winner of Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize 2014.
