I want you to know: A Writing Workshop for Refugees and People from Refugee Families
Venue: Bluecoat, 8 School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BT
Tickets: Free, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place
This is a writing workshop for refugees to tell their stories. Many times, refugees are asked to talk about why they became refugees. We’ll be focusing on stories that you want to tell, whatever those stories might be. The workshop is open to refugees at all levels of writing experience. It is part of Barbed Wire Fever, a creative exploration of what it means to be a refugee (funded by Arts Council England). www.barbedwirefever.com
