Arvon at Home: Live Guest Reading

Reading and Q&A with Caleb Azumah Nelson via Zoom

Wednesday May 12th 2021, 7:15 BST

Online

Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to distract, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. And so while you can’t come to us, instead we will come to you, bringing a taste of Arvon into your home one night a week. Every week an Arvon tutor will join us as a guest, to read from their own work and answer your questions live and in person online.

This Live Guest Reading is with Caleb Azumah Nelson on Wednesday 12th May at 7:15pm BST

Caleb Azumah Nelson (b. 1993) is a British-Ghanaian writer and photographer, living in South East London. His writing has been published in Litro and he was recently shortlisted for the Palm Photo Prize and won the People’s Choice prize. He was shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award 2020 for his story Pray. He was selected by the Observer as one of the ’10 Best Debut Novelists of 2021′, and his debut novel Open Water was chosen by the Booksellers Association as its Fiction Book of the Month for February 2021.

The reading and interactive Q&A will be hosted on Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.

We are more committed than ever to helping writers find inspiration, and to make space for their own creativity, no matter the setting. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table).

Cost: £5.00
