How do we write about the places and spaces that mean something to us — places we have just arrived at or have had to leave behind, or those that we have always lived in the midst of; or imaginary places that only exist in our minds? Join author, Sharon Duggal in a practical workshop designed to help you develop the perfect balance of words to truly to evoke a sense of place in your writing and make your settings come to life whatever they may be. As part of the workshop, Sharon will share her own experience of writing about inner-city landscapes and the diverse communities that have settled in them.

Sharon Duggal is a writer, campaigner and community radio presenter/producer amongst other things. Her acclaimed debut novel, The Handsworth Times is set against a backdrop of social unrest, neglected communities, incredible music and the healing power of direct action in 1980’s working-class Birmingham. It was The Morning Star’s fiction ‘Book of the Year 2016‘ and Brighton City Reads 2017.

Sharon is the recipient of a grant from Arts Council England for the development of her second novel, currently in progress, where she is exploring themes of home and belonging.
