DO YOU BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO UNLOCK THEIR CREATIVE POTENTIAL?
At a time when many more people in our society face deprivation and barriers to opportunity, it is more important than ever that a variety of voices are heard. We believe that everyone deserves the freedom to imagine, write and explore ideas regardless of their age or financial background. Your donations help to keep Arvon’s doors open to all.
I’ve been a student on two Arvon courses and I’ve taught seven. I know how life-changing they can be for aspiring writers. It is absolutely vital that they are equally accessible to everyone who might benefit
