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 week 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 Amanda Smyth on Wednesday 10th November at 7.15pm BST.

Amanda Smyth is Irish-Trinidadian. Born in Ireland, she is the author of Black Rock, A Kind of Eden and Fortune. Black Rock won the Prix du Premier Roman prize, was shortlisted for the McKitterick Prize and was selected as an Oprah Winfrey Summer Read. Fortune was published earlier this year by Peepal Tree Press. Amanda teaches creative writing at Arvon, Skyros in Greece, and at Coventry University. She lives in Leamington Spa with her family.

The reading and interactive Q&A will be hosted on Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.

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).
