The Midlands in Writing – chaired by Kit de Waal

Date: May 26, 2021

Time: 7.00pm

Location: Online

Lisa Blower (award-winning short story writer: Sitting Ducks; It’s Gone Dark Over Bill’s Mother’s; Pondweed) and Emma Purshouse (Common People anthology; Dogged) bring the Midlands to the page in their latest novels Pondweed and Dogged.
Brimming with unlikely heroes and the voices of working-class people from the Black Country and Stoke-on-Trent, their books bring the accents and dialects from across the Midlands to an audience not used to hearing it, nor seeing it on the page.
Lisa and Emma will be in conversation with Kit de Waal, author and campaigner for more representation of working-class writers in literature and the publishing industry.
Wednesday 26 May 2021
7pm – 8pm
Online via Zoom Webinar
