‘What has been taken from us when we’re from a working class background? As writers, it’s common that the work we produce is informed by our identities – whether we speak about them directly or use them for character inspiration. How can we tell these stories authentically in our writing?’

Prompted writing session inspired by the history of the Portico.
Post Workshop Networking
Recently, Louis Glazzard and Lucy Rose spoke about being a working class writer and after some responses to the videos they decided to collaborate and set up the Working Class Writers Circle.
One of the hardest parts about being a working class writer is the lack of opportunity for us. In this space we’ll be sharing opportunities. On the day at the Portico, we’d be hosting space to chat about your concerns about being a working class writer and then connecting over a cup of tea or coffee. You will then be given access to our network (if you aren’t already part of it).
