Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to distract, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. And so while you can’t come to us, instead we will come to you, bringing a taste of Arvon into your home one night a week. Every Wednesday evening an Arvon tutor will join us as a guest, to read from their own work and answer your questions live and in person online.

This Live Guest Reading is with Roger Robinson on Wednesday 6 May at 7:15 pm. Roger Robinson won the TS Eliot Prize 2019 for his latest book A Portable Paradise. He was shortlisted for The OCM Bocas Poetry Prize and highly commended by the Forward Poetry Prize 2013. He has toured extensively with the British Council and is a co-founder of Spoke Lab and Malika’s Poetry Kitchen. He has performed worldwide and is an experienced workshop leader and lecturer on poetry. He was chosen by the arts organisation Decibel as one of 50 writers who have influenced the black-British writing canon. The reading and interactive Q&A will be hosted on Zoom and tickets are just £5.

We are more committed than ever to helping writers find inspiration, and to make space for their own creativity, no matter the setting. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table).
