Arvon at Home Masterclass: The Arts of Non-Fiction

Zoom Masterclass with Horatio Clare

Thursday March 11th 2021, 11.00 am GMT


Horatio Clare presents a masterclass on the arts of non-fiction. What is the relationship between memory and memoir? What happens when your friends and family become characters? How do you write truthfully when facts are unknown, or contested? Where do you find stories which need to be told? We will cover various aspects of non-fiction, including nature, travel and biography, looking at the techniques, tricks and methods of some of the great practitioners.

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

Grants are available to help with the course fee

"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."
