Arvon at Home: Live Guest Reading

Reading and Q&A with Jack Underwood via Zoom

Wednesday March 9th 2022, 19:15 GMT


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.

Jack Underwood is author of two poetry collections, Happiness and A Year in the New Life, and a non-fiction work, Not Even This, about poetry, uncertainty and parenthood. He is also critic, a writer of short fiction, and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths College.

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

This event is part of Rachel Long’s Spring 2022 Residency with Arvon. To see all upcoming events in the program please click here.

Cost: £5.00 (concession: £2.50)


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


"Thanks for an excellent session last night. It worked very well on Zoom, especially with the Q&A using the chat function."


"What a brilliant reading. It was intimate and moving and very listener friendly. I loved it and will be back for more."
