Join poet, writer and spoken word artist Akila Richards in this creative writing workshop exploring sound and rhythm to mark our milestones through the music that grounds us.
What are you proud of? What makes you feel tender? What gives you strength? And how does music play into all of these questions? These are the questions we’ll be exploring in this creative writing workshop, digging into the memory-making qualities of music and the songs that we associate with pivotal moments and key milestones in our lives.
Accompanied by a curated soundtrack by artist and writer Maria Amidu, through selecting tracks that hold special meanings to us personally, we will uncover the deep ways that music can influence our writing and creative thought processes.
This will be a fun, casual workshop of writing, listening to music, chats, and – if you wish – sharing our favourite lines we’ve written at the end.
No writing experience needed! All writing materials will be provided – if you can, all your need to bring is a listening device (e.g. phone, laptop) and some earphones.
This workshop is open to people aged between 18-30 who identify as people of colour.
