Race Today: Using Archive in Fiction Writing

16 March

Explore the inspiration and pitfalls of utilising archive for fiction writing

For all the budding PoC/BAME writers out there join writer, director and facilitator Tian Glasgow in a free workshop to explore the inspiration and pitfalls of utilising archive for fiction writing.

In this workshop you’ll be introduced to the wider Race Today Project that New Slang Productions is creating.

How engaging with various forms of archive including the Race Today magazine spurred Tian to begin this journey into the history of activist writing.

Over the 3 hour workshop, participants will be given short exercises to spark discussion around accuracy, representation but also the empowerment in using activist archive in fiction writing.
