A two day FREE workshop at The Intimate Space, a new venue in Hornsey, London N8 will explore how we embody the lives we nearly lead and how to express the nearly stories of the novel’s protagonists and readers through writing and performance as well as via digital means. We will use collaborative writing practices and methods of devising performance through physical improvisations.
