School course structure
The structure and content of Arvon courses have been developed over 40 years to provide an exceptional mix of professional guidance and space for personal creativity within a rural environment where students live and work together as part of a tightly-knit group.
Each course is tailored to suit each group, with a mixture of workshop exercises, time to write and one-to-one tutorials with both tutors. Each evening there is an activity such as a tutor or guest reading with time for questions. The residential aspect includes cooking together with everyone taking it in turns to work in teams of four to produce an evening meal. One of the highlights of the week is often the sharing of work on the final evening.
Our Centre Directors can provide support in varying the structure of the week to meet your group’s needs and in finding the most suitable writers to be your tutors. For school weeks we have offered everything from Writing for Radio, Scriptwriting, Spoken Word and Performance courses to Poetry and Fiction. We are open to your inspiration and input - so if you have ideas about what kind of writing you would like to explore then let us know.
