Recovering Voices and Stories Lost from History

  • The Teahouse Theatre Café 139 Vauxhall Walk London, England, SE11 5HL United Kingdom (map)

Guest author Alice Jolly joins us for the February Words Away Salon.

Societies have so rarely recorded the voices of the marginalised and enslaved, the poor and oppressed or dispossessed. So how does a writer go about researching and reimagining these unheard or erased voices? You might have a germ of an idea but not sure how to begin or where to find the raw materials. Then there’s the question of form – fiction versus non-fiction? Join us this evening alongside novelist, playwright and creative writing teacher, Alice Jolly, as we discuss ways to develop character, point of view and some of the other tools you might need to recover voices lost to the past.
