Our 5-day theatre and playwriting courses offer both beginner and more established playwrights the perfect environment to release their imaginative potential, and concentrate on their writing, away from everyday distractions. Do you want to weave your idea into a fully formed script? Or maybe you might fancy telling stories through music, or adapting your play for screen or radio? Our theatre and playwriting course programme offers this and more. On each one of our course weeks you will benefit from the support of accomplished playwrights, plenty of time to write, workshops and tutorials.
Tutors include Jessica Swale, Willy Russell, David Eldridge and Selina Thompson.
“There is really nothing quite like Arvon. Where else can writers find the space and the encouragement to put pen to paper, in the most beautiful settings in the country? It’s a privilege to be a tutor and an alumni” Jessica Swale
