Whose Story?

Monday April 15, 2019
10:00 - 17:00
  • This event has passed.

Whether from experience or imagination, how is it possible to write well about characters and situations off the mainstream, characters whose skin colour, spiritual beliefs, migration experience, gender, sexual orientation and identity or other factors create a distance between them and the society around them? And who gets to write those characters? Only members of particular interest groups, or any writer sensitive enough to enter wholly the world of his/her characters?

This master class will explore these questions and others as we discuss, read and write together. Facilitated by US-born Israeli novelist and translator Evan Fallenberg.

Lunch will be provided – let us know if you have any dietary requirements by filling out the dietary form at checkout.
