Endings & Beginnings – with Yewande Omotoso

Endings & Beginnings – with Yewande Omotoso
Sunday 3 July
14:30 – 16:30, £20
Bronte/ Bâ Room A

In this workshop with guest writer Yewande Omotoso, we meditate on fiction novels and the artform of first and last impressions. Through a series of exercises, including writing exercises and reading through and examining examples from various novels, we consider the design of beginnings and endings, the relationship between them and why it matters at all.

£20, and some funded places available. To book, email ras_events@soas.ac.uk
