Write, Resist, Revise with Rashida Murphy (sold out)

Friday September 25, 2020
13:00 - 16:00

Are you interested in the politics of writing consciously? Of writing in a way that resists and revises the narratives you read?

Join Rashida Murphy for a three hour workshop where she will look at classic and contemporary texts with a view to understanding how privilege and colonialism operate and how to critique those in your own writing.

We will discuss strategies of revision and resistance in a series of short discussions and exercises to help you develop new strengths and awareness.
