Description

Fact, Fiction, Fear and Fantasy in contemporary storytelling

Swansea University’s Creative Writing team present a public workshop on how the tension between fear and hope informs the 21st Century author. A panel including Alan Bilton, Jasmine Donahaye and  Anne-Lauppe Dunbar talk about the place of research in the creation of fiction and non-fiction. Dr Donahaye’s Losing Israel was the non-fiction winner of this year’s Wales Book of the Year Award, and Dr Lauppe-Dunbar’s Dark Mermaids, based on research into East German sports doping practices in the 1970s, was shortlisted for a UK sports book of the year award. Dr Bilton has just released a new collection of funny and fear-laden short stories, Anywhere Out of the World.  The session will be chaired by Director of Creative Writing, Professor D.J.Britton, who will invite the audience to share their own stories of hope and fear. 

Refreshments will be served from 2pm.
