Sign up now to join me and the newly-anointed RSL fellow Niall Griffiths at the beautiful Ty Newydd on the Llyn Peninsula for a week’s worth of masterclasses, discussions and workshops on Writing from Identity.
Prize-winning writers Niall Griffiths and Lisa Blower are both passionate about representing the stories and voices of their own pasts that are synonymous with place, industry, culture, and class. Through group workshops and one-to-one tutorials, Niall and Lisa will focus upon celebrating the stories that may have defined us, those circumstances we’ve broken away from, the places that represent us, and how we might draw from the untold stories of our own experiences to produce work that celebrates regionality, authenticity, belonging, and identity. This is a course that will not shy away from the importance of identity politics and the politics themselves that shape communities and the stories within them. The week will be jam-packed with creative ideas, writing prompts, discussion and informal workshops providing you with a backpack of skills to carry on beyond the course.
