Conversations with Friends – Online talks

To mark the end of each semester, Lisa and her Creative Writing colleagues at Wolverhampton University host Conversations with Friends in association with Artsfest.

These online socials invite a special guest to discuss a topic that has featured across the programme that semester or been a subject at large affecting the student community.

So far, the team have hosted:

All the Writing Selves You Have to be with Emma Purshouse

Myriad Editions Short Story Salon with Hannah Vincent, Elaine Chiew & Elleke Boehmer, chaired by Candida Lacey, Publishing Director

Poetry on Prescription: Creative Writing and wellbeing with Deborah Alma
