Arvon at Home: Live Guest Reading

Reading and Q&A with Christodoulos Makris via Zoom

Wednesday June 16th 2021, 7:15 BST


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 Christodoulos Makris on Wednesday 16th June at 7:15pm BST

Christodoulos Makris is a poet and writer with a practice rooted in contemporary experimental, cross-disciplinary, hybrid and collaborative poetics. He has published three books of poetry, as well as several pamphlets, artists’ books and other poetry objects. Recent awards include Digital Poet in Residence at StAnza Festival (2017, Arts Council of Ireland Literature Project Award (2020-21), and the national artist development scheme Platform31 (2021. He is the poetry editor at gorse journal and associated imprint Gorse Editions.

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


Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.
