Zoom masterclass with David Quantick

Thursday August 6th 2020, 11:00am BST


Our writing houses may be temporarily closed, but Arvon remains very much open: to helping people make space for creativity and to connecting them with the finest writing tutors. For the first time, Arvon is bringing its celebrated writing workshops online.

Arvon at Home Masterclass: A Short Guide to Writing Everything

David Quantick is an award-winning writer of television shows, radio scripts, novels, magazine articles and writing guides. A music journalist, radio presenter and comedy writer for many years, David won an Emmy for his work on HBO’s Veep and his novels include All My Colors and Night Train.

All these various aspects of David’s writing career will be combined in David’s talk for Arvon, which has the modest title of A Short Guide To Writing Everything, and is about every single aspect of writing in all its forms.

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.

Warning: First parameter must either be an object or the name of an existing class in /home/ on line 31


"These zoom opportunities are really helping to open my world and keep me inspired to write."

"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."

—Masterclass participant

"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."
