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.

Matched funding from Arvon

I'm delighted to say that Arvon has found funding to match the amount I raised - so that I am able to offer three people bursaries of £500 towards the cost of the course instead of £250! This is lovely news - applications have now closed, and I am making my decisions about awarding the bursaries. Thank you all, again, for your generosity.  I won't be making the names of the recipients public, that is up to them, but please know how much of a difference you are making, giving opportunities to writers who not only might not be able to afford it but also may never have considered that they were worthy of doing this kind of course, or asking for assistance to do it. 

Best wishes and I hope you're having a lovely weekend!
