Arvon at Home Masterclass: Taming the Octopus

Zoom masterclass with Cathy Rentzenbrink

Thursday November 12th 2020, 11:00am GMT


The story of our life can feel like an octopus with tentacles wriggling about all over the place. In this lively workshop we will look at ways to capture and organise the vastness of our material so that we can come up with a working structure that helps us to avoid overwhelm and enables us to make progress towards a first draft.

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.

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."
