About the event : The theme for this event is Making. Each of the three speakers will respond as they see fit to the theme - with a new piece of literature or an informal talk, an academic lecture or a performance. They might shape or excerpt a previous work for the night or create brand new fiction, non-fiction, theatre or poetry. Their choice of medium is as creatively free as their choice of message. Each presentation will last around ten minutes followed by a short discussion and a Q&A with the audience to close.
This event will mark the beginning of the month long Writer's Centre Kingston exhibition at Museum of Futures, entitled Scribbling and Scrawling, which runs FEB 22ND TO MARCH 21ST 2018. Click here for more information - www.writerscentrekingston.com/futures
