Get the basics and try out something new

Monday November 26th - Saturday December 1st 2018

Lumb Bank

This week will give you the opportunity to look hard at the fundamentals of your art, to take risks, to strike out freely and to come closer to being the writer you would like to be rather than the one you think you should be. The emphasis will be on free, uncritical writing, on experimenting with form and discovering a little more of what happens when your nib meets the page in a spirit of boldness and play.

This course is half-price for Arvon 18-25 members and those in receipt of certain UK state benefits – see here for concession pricing information.

Single room price: £770 
Shared room price: £720
