The Writer as Catalyst and Collaborator

  • 27th April 2016
  • 6:00 - 9:30 pm
  • Stephen Lawrence Gallery
Writing is self-expression, but it is also much more. Writing can start a conversation, issue a call to action or stand as an act of witness. Writing may be the work of a unique author, but it can also be interactive and collaborative.  Drawing on their diverse experience, our panel will discuss the potential of writing as a form of action and collaboration:
Olumide Popoola & Annie Holmes, co-authors of forthcoming book breach, which tells the story of the refugee crisis through six voices based on interviews with refugees in Calais.
Jean-Paul Flintoff, author of How to Change the World
Sarah Haynes, Head of Interactive Media at Liverpool John Moores University and creator of collaborative fiction The Button Jar
Maya Chowdhry, poet and interactive artist
This talk is part of the New Space of Publishing research series, run as part of the Creative Conversations Initiative in the Creative Professions and Digital Arts Department at the University of Greenwich. There will be refreshments provided following the talk. The event is free. To confirm your attendance please RSVP via the Eventbrite link
