Arvon at Home Masterclass: Experimenting with Form

Zoom masterclass with Natasha Brown

Thursday April 21st 2022, 11:00 GMT


Explore how experiments with form and language can bring another dimension to writing with Natasha Brown. Through looking at form-defying work from authors such as Meena Kandasamy, Lydia Davis, Claudia Rankine and others, we will examine different approaches to experimentation. And, of course, there will be plenty of opportunities for hands-on literary experiments. No goggles or lab coats required!

The masterclass will be delivered via Zoom and will last two hours (11:00 – 13:00) 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. Bookers unable to join the live session will be able to view this Arvon Masterclass for up to two weeks after the event. You must book your place before the event starts in order to access this facility.

"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."
