Arvon Mentor

Tim is delighted to be the Jerwood/Arvon Playwriting Mentor for 2017/18. 

Now in its eighth year, the programme is run by Arvon in partnership with Jerwood Charitable Foundation, and will take on twelve talented, emerging writers, who will be mentored for one year by an established writer working in the genre of either Poetry, Fiction or Playwriting. Thanks to full funding from Jerwood Charitable Foundation, the programme is free.

This is a unique opportunity to transform your writing practice. Over the course of the year you will benefit from dedicated support and guidance with your writing, two week-long residentials at an Arvon centre, and additional advice sessions from industry professionals.

They are looking for applications from those interested in developing both their writing and professional practice, who have a clear idea of what they would like to achieve over a one-year period.

If you are 18 or over, and have attended any Arvon course in 2015 or 2016 (including Partnership and Arvon City courses, retreats and Clockhouse Retreats), you may be eligible to apply for this year’s scheme. If you applied in 2015 for the 2016/17 scheme, you are eligible to apply again.

The submission pack (available here) includes full details on eligibility and instructions on how to apply. The closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 9th January 2017.
