Africa Writes – Workshops for Years 7, 8 and 9

At this year’s festival we are excited about developing our offer to schools and inspiring the writers of the future. On Friday 1 July we offer exciting and inspiring creative writing workshops at the British Library. Led by professional facilitators, the workshops are open to students of all abilities and are designed to boost students’ confidence in their own creative contributions. Using African art forms such as proverbs, photography and music as a stimulus, we aim to inspire students to express themselves freely and create their own piece of poetry or fiction.
