Podcast: Writing Our Way Home | Free Word

Writing Our Way Home took place at Free Word on 15 October 2019, as part of our Writing Our Way Home Season.


What power does literature have in hostile environments? Can it do more than describe homes and spaces of belonging – can it create them? In a society overwhelmed with questions of who has the right to be heard and who doesn’t, can literature strengthen threatened communities?

Black British writers Roger Robinson, Winsome Pinnock, Inua Ellams and Bridget Minamore join for intergenerational reflections on writing and resistance with Wasafiri. Listen below to the conversation:
