Arvon Friends

Become an Arvon Friend: stay inspired and help others discover the power of writing

Arvon Friends are at the heart of what we do. Friends’ donations support our work with some of the most disadvantaged young people and adults in the UK.

As a Friend of Arvon and with all my friends from Arvon – I am confident that I will never lose that confidence and motivation to use my voice and achieve that first novel.
Chris Metcalfe, Arvon Friend



By becoming a Friend you can help Arvon offer bespoke courses for young people and vulnerable adults, and grants for those who would otherwise be unable to attend. Click here to see some of the projects which are supported by Friends’ donations.

You can become an Arvon Friend from £30 per year. To say thank you, Friends receive priority booking for courses, regular e-newsletters, the chance to attend our annual Friends’ Retreat, and invitations to selected events.

Becoming an Arvon Friend is the ideal way of finding inspiration and motivation before and after your course. You can also buy a Gift Friendship for someone who you know is harbouring a desire to write. They make great gifts for people who love writing. We hope you will join us as an Arvon Friend.
