First Story Residential Anthology 2016

The First Story Residential Anthology 2016 has arrived! And it’s crammed full of the thoughts and voices of forty-seven students inspired by five glorious days of writing.

For each student, the Residential was a once in a life-time opportunity to forge friendships with their peers and be taught by acclaimed writers Jasmine Cooray, Andy Craven-Griffiths, Anjum Malik, Tim Pears, Dan Powell and Christie Watson and guest writers Elmi Ali, Matt Cook and Vinay Patel — all in the tranquil setting of Arvon’s beautiful countryside houses. Through a combination of workshops, tutorials and performances, students were stirred to write pieces that crossed an array of topics and ideas, from exploring their identity to introducing new words to the English dictionary!

So why wait? Download the Residential Anthology now and catch a glimpse of the inexhaustible talent and creativity of these young writers.
