Stories of Home is a literary programme offered to displaced people living in London with an opportunity to workshop African literature and write their own creative pieces in response to the literature as well as to their own experiences. After the half-day workshop participants will have the opportunity to work with an editor to edit their creative pieces which would then be published in the Stories of Home digital anthology. The anthology will be launched at an exclusive Afrikult. event, and the participants will be invited to attend.
The half-day workshop is free for participants including a stipend offered for public transportation, lunch provided and an Afrikult. take-away bag gifted.
Participants do not need to have any prior knowledge of African literature or creative writing to take part.
Reserve your space on bit.ly/SoHParticipation. The spaces are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis.
