Creative Conversations – New Dates Added

Published Tue 6 Sep 2022 - By Literature Wales

We are pleased to share the next two sessions in our programme of Creative Conversations, a series of public events for writers and workshop leaders

Creative Conversations is a regular series of short events, running once a month, to inspire the writers and creatives of Wales. This programme offers open and accessible opportunities for writers and creatives to learn about using literature in participatory settings and help with their own professional development as a writer.

These events are also an opportunity to meet other writers, exchange ideas, share best practice, resources and contacts and enjoy creative conversations with each other. This programme has been developed in response to feedback and consultation sessions we led with writers across Wales throughout 2021

Each 90-minute lunchtime session is held on Zoom and is free to attend. Creative Conversations aims to contribute to building a supportive professional network of emerging and established writers in Wales and to ensuring a thriving, representative and diverse literary ecosystem.

There will be live captioning and/or BSL for Deaf/hard of hearing participants provided in selected sessions. We will try to meet additional access requirements wherever possible, please get in touch with specific access requirements, concerns, or requests.
