Funding places on Arvon Flash Fiction Course
We did it
On 4th April 2018 we successfully raised £780 with 24 supporters in 56 days

I am raising money to offer four half-funded places on the 5-day residential Arvon Flash Fiction writing course I'm co-tutoring in Nov 2018.

I am a writer and when I started out as a single mum on a very low income I couldn't afford to enter competitions let alone go on residentials. Happy to help make things smoother for the next generation of emerging writers.

I was put off by the cost of Arvon courses for years, but was lucky enough to receive a substantial grant which enabled me to participate. Despite the cost, Arvon courses are excellent value and can make a big difference to writers and their writing. I wish I could donate more, because this is a great opportunity, but this is my small way of paying it forward.

How many talented people are left unheard because circumstances don't allow that tiny foothold to climb? I love the idea of this and Kit de Waal's initiative.

Because Arvon courses are excellent and I would love to see more BAME writers on them: I was the only one mine! And I know Totleigh - a beautiful, nurturing environment.
