Arvon at Home Masterclass: Sustaining a Writing Practice In Difficult Times

Zoom masterclass with Jen Ashworth

Thursday July 23rd 2020, 11:00am BST

Online

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: Staying Creative and Connected – Sustaining a Writing Practice In Difficult Times

Gentle writing prompts aimed at helping you discover what can be achieved in 2, 5, 10 and 15 minutes – and some suggestions and advice for how to make even small writing sessions count, how to keep in touch with a long project when you can’t work on it every day, and how to work alongside distraction, disruption, anxiety and the inner critic.

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 communications@arvon.org to apply.

Cost: £35

COURSE TUTOR

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

—Masterclass participant

"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."
