Arvon and Moniack Mhor

23 Apr 2014 / News

From April 2015, Arvon courses will no longer be held at Moniack Mhor, Scotland’s Creative Writing Centre near Inverness. Moniack Mhor has been affiliated with Arvon since 1993, running a short series of Arvon creative writing courses annually alongside its own programme for partner, schools and the local community. It has recently received funding from Creative Scotland to support its development and will now be running its own programme. Arvon courses at Moniack Mhor during 2014 will continue to run as normal.

Ruth Borthwick, Chief Executive of Arvon: “Arvon stimulated the founding of Moniack Mhor by Kit and Sophia Fraser over twenty years ago and it has been a much-loved centre for many Arvon writers. Arvon is pleased to see Moniack thrive and develop, and we look forward to a new relationship as the plans of both organisations unfold.”

Rachel Humphries, Centre Director of Moniack Mhor: “we are incredibly proud of the partnership that we have had with Arvon over the last twenty years and we would really like to work towards reframing our work together so that we can continue to celebrate our relationship”.
