We are delighted to announce that our next Writer on the Bloc, will be hip hop artist and political campaigner Lowkey, who will begin a three-week residency on Monday 14th September.
22nd September, Writing Unusual Perspectives, 6pm
This session will focus on the practise of writing from the perspective of non traditional angles. Lowkey’s piece 'Words of a Wound' will be used as an introduction to the workshop with the lyrics written from the point of view of a wound. The session will then examine the way Hassan Blasim was able to write from an unusual perspective in one of his strongest short stories. Integral to the session will be keen observation of the tools used to represent new angles as interactive subjects. The final part of the workshop will draw on Mahmoud Darwish's poem 'The House as a Casualty' to enrich the participants' understanding further. Click here to book and more information
