Zoom masterclass with Christopher Wakling

Arvon at Home Masterclass: Fire in the Flint – A Writing Workout

This masterclass will spark ideas for new stories and give you the know-how to develop them. We’ll look at compelling examples, see how they work, and use them as inspiration for our own fiction, be it short or long. Think of it as a two-hour writing workout. It will put words on the page. Tune in prepared to experiment.

Christopher Wakling’s eight published novels include What I Did and Escape and Evasion.  He has tutored for Arvon since 2004.

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. If you have booked and do not receive the Zoom link within 24 hours, please email

Cost: £35

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.


"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."
