What makes a story or a poem? When does a poem become a story? Is there a difference between prose poetry and flash fiction, and does it matter? What is hybrid writing? Join award-winning writers, Tania Hershman and Rachel Bower, for a day immersed in the distilled worlds of poetry, short stories and hybrid writing.

In the morning workshop with Rachel Bower, you’ll experiment with different poetic and narrative techniques, and explore the ways that borrowing and play can light up your work. In the afternoon workshop with Tania Hershman, you’ll delve into the exciting and playful world of hybrid writing. Here, “hybrid” means possibility, potential, mixing it up, collision, and combination.

Whether you’re just starting out, or whether you want to experiment with new techniques and forms to push your writing to a new level, this Live Writing Day will give you the chance to experiment with language in new ways in a warm and supportive environment.

There's nothing quite like an Arvon course: that feeling of learning, of discovering new things about yourself and the people you meet along the way.

It was great to meet other writers and forge connections. It was insightful to hear directly from established authors and poets about their practice and influences in an approachable and intimate space.
