Will Harris will be hosting in person writing workshops in China Exchange, London (21st May) and Lakeside Arts, University of Nottingham (22nd May), followed by four online workshops through May and June. The writing workshops will provide a space to explore our various cultures and communities, in the hope of opening up much-needed conversations. A collection of the writing will be developed between our writer in residence and the participants. No prior writing experience is necessary.

We have many ways to categorise ourselves and others. Name, professional, cultural ties and family roles are often the constructs which form the easiest ways to define identities. But it is the less easy, less neat, often overlapping and competing areas that reveal who we are. 

Enjoy an evening of conversation with acting deputy editor of Harper’s Bazaar Helena Lee, acclaimed novelist Rowan Hisayo Buchanan as each accounts their own experiences within a dynamic spectrum of cultural context through creative means. Their essays, featured in the newly launched East Side Voices, addresses stories beyond a mere facet which forms one’s identity.
