ARVON - with Tessa Strickland & David Roberts!

Arvon   Mon 13th - Sat 18th May 2013
Co-Tutor: Tessa Strickland (Barefoot Books)
Guest: David Roberts (Author/Illustrator)

Renowned for its five-day residential creative writing courses, Arvon has launched its 2013 programme of courses and I will be Co-Tutor in residence between the 13th and 18th May with the brilliant Tessa Strickland (aka:Stella Blackstone).

The week will take place in a beautiful writing house set in the inspiring countryside of North Devon, and include morning workshops, one-to-one tutorials and plenty of time and space to write. Arvon also run a grant system, for those who would not be able to afford the full course fee, around a quarter of participants receive help in this way, and the amount of grant can be as high as the full fee.

For more information on our 'Writing for Children' week:

This year we are hoping for many aspiring illustrators to sign up, as well as children's writers (Or both, of course!)

So if you are, or know of anybody else that might be interested in signing up, please spread the word. It really is a wonderfully inspiring, creative and fun week in an absolutely beautiful setting - and places are limited!
