"Stories of Home is a half-day workshop offered to displaced people living in London with an opportunity to workshop African literature and also to 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 by the end of the year at Afrikult.’s ‘Words that Travel’ Lounge event, which the participants will be invited to attend. The half-day workshop is free for participants with a stipend offered for public transportation, delicious lunch provided and an Afrikult. take-away bag gifted.
The workshops will be hosted at SOAS, University of London, in association with SOAS Alumni, on Monday 18 June and at Free Word on Friday 22 June who have offered their venues support-in-kind."
Participants will also receive free daytime weekend festival tickets for Africa Writes 2018.
