Arvon at Home Masterclass: A Portable Paradise Craft Talk

Zoom masterclass with Roger Robinson

Thursday October 1st 2020, 11:00am BST


Arvon at Home Masterclass: A Portable Paradise Craft Talk

Join Roger Robinson as he discusses the making of, and decisions behind his award winning book, A Portable Paradise. A workshop peppered with literary and aesthetic rationales behind the book from inception to print. The craft talk will also reference his personal writing practices and how you can replicate them within your own process with writing prompts. Poetry readers will leave with a greater appreciation of what goes into the making of a book of poems; writers will leave with tools to improve their craft.

The masterclass will be delivered via Zoom and will last two hours (11:00am – 13:00pm) including time for you to write. You will need to have a computer or smart device and a reliable internet connection in order to participate. This is a live event only and it will not be recorded.

There are limited number of grants available for people on low-income. These are allocated on a first come first served basis. Please contact to apply.

Cost: £35

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."

"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
