Arvon at Home Masterclass: Finding your writing mojo

Zoom masterclass with Jessica Swale

Thursday November 26th 2020, 11:00am GMT


This workshop, for writers of any genre, is all about grasping the moment and conquering the blank page. Whether you’re an experienced writer, or just curious to have a go, over the course of the session Jessica will share her top tips for getting started and host a series of exercises in which you’ll try various ‘ways in’ to kick start the creative process. Practical exercises alongside down to earth advice—and her list of things she’d love to tell her former self if she could jump back in time to when she started writing. It’s a pressure free chance to just have a little fun and try some ideas out. Playtime!

The masterclass will be delivered via Zoom and will last two hours (11:00am – 1:00pm) 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."
