This course is will take place on:

Saturday 7 August 2021

  • Duration: 1 Day
  • Format: online, live workshops

This is a live 1-Day course. Students will take part in a series of live online writing workshops.

Join us in this amazing writing workshop in which the work of the great South African Revolutionary, Bantu Steve Biko, is used as inspiration to help participants to write more audaciously and consciously.

We’ll dive into extracts from Biko’s writings to discover what it means to write fearlessly. Through a series of writing exercises, students will be challenged to tackle subjects that fill them with trepidation, and to use historical, contemporary and personal perspectives to fearlessly bring their narratives to life.

This workshop is great for those interested in life writing, looking to explore emancipatory discourse, or generally looking to improve their writing.

Biko wrote audaciously, striking fear into the heart of the South African government and invigorating South Africa’s Black youth. He combined history, philosophy and personal reflection into brilliant prose that mapped delicately the dysfunctions of Black reality under the apartheid regime.
