Chair, Arvon
Deadline: Mon 14 Jun 2021
Arvon is searching for a new Chair. Could it be you? Arvon has been the UK’s home of creative writing for over 50 years. Our programme, led by highly acclaimed writers, spans poetry to playwriting, song to screenplay, fact to fiction, starting to finishing, and we offer grants to help with course fees for those who need it.

Our next Chair may come from one of many walks of life. We are keen to hear from people who share Arvon’s belief in the power of the imagination and our conviction that the benefits of creative writing should be available to everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances.

The Chair will be leading the Board in its discussions and decision-making at an exciting time. In 2020, in response to the pandemic, we opened our fourth writing house, Arvon at Home. This ‘virtual house’ has vastly increased our reach. Our three physical writing houses started to re-open in May but Arvon at Home will continue, signalling our intent to become ever more inclusive and accessible.

This is a voluntary role and is unremunerated although reasonable expenses can be claimed. We particularly welcome applications from all underrepresented groups.

Deadline: 14 June 2021
