  • The Albany Centre Douglas Way London SE8 4AG. United Kingdom (map)

With, Spread the Word, London’s writer development agency, we’re offering free writing workshops for refugees and people from refugee families.

These writing workshops are for refugees to tell stories about themselves. In these workshops, the focus will be on stories that you want people to know, whatever those stories might be. They are open to refugees and people from refugee families at all levels of writing experience.

There will be two Barbed Wire Fever writing workshops on Saturday 28 September: one from 11:00  AM – 1:00 PM  and a second workshop from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Each workshop will be two hours long and use freewriting techniques to generate new work. Up to eight people can participate in each workshop and participants will be reimbursed for travel costs.

There is no charge for participating, but please contact aliya@spreadtheword.org.uk to reserve a place. Free childcare will be available during the morning session so that parents can participate while their children play. Please let us know if you want to bring your children to this.
