The other side of hope: journeys in refugee and immigrant literature is a UK-based literary magazine edited by refugees and migrants. This event will include a conversation and writing workshop with the magazine’s editor, Alexandros Plasatis, whose own short stories have been shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize and Pushcart Prize.
What does it mean to be a migrant and how might the hospitality offered to you in your host country make all the difference to your wellbeing and sense of belonging? You’ll have a chance to explore these questions and more at this workshop, where you’ll be supported in developing your own short stories. You’ll also be given advice about next steps, including publication.
The workshop will be run in English, but speakers of languages other than English are welcome. The workshop will be suitable for all writers, from beginners to those with experience. This event is suitable for ages 18+.
