Writers workshop with Neil McKenna

21st April 2016 @ 02:00pm

A unique opportunity to attend a workshop event with award-winning writer Neil McKenna. The session is aimed at writers with an interest in exploring the use of archival and heritage materials in their work, and how archives can be a unique source of inspiration in the creation of new writing for theatre, performance, short stories and novels. We will specifically be looking at using Queer / LGBT archival content.


Neil McKenna is the award winning journalist and author of: The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde (2004), Fanny & Stella (2013) and has contributed many articles to The Guardian, The Independent, New Statesman, Channel 4, and many others. The workshop will give a unique insight into Neil's creative processes.
