Literary Natives curates events to celebrate and discuss writers of colour, literature, and the road to becoming a published author.

To coincide with Refugee Week 2018, Literary Natives are hosting an event at the Migration Museum at The Workshop on Sunday 24 June, featuring discussions, readings and performances by authors, poets and storytellers.

The programme for the day will be as follows:

– The day starts off with a panel discussion with three authors – Saeida Rouass, J. Anthony Vassel and MS Karamat (see below for bios) – followed by a Q&A session.

– There will be a cake and coffee break for attendees to network after the Q&A.

– We will then listen to readings and performances by poets and storytellers.

Attendees will have plenty of time to view our current exhibitions and contribute to our interactive displays, as well as to engage with Literary Natives’ own display of artwork on Dreams and Transnationality by five chosen artists. There will also be a book giveaway competition based on online interaction using the hashtag #LiteraryNativesLive.

Tickets for this all-day event cost £7.79 (plus £1.20 Eventbrite booking fee).
