Identity and Belonging: Writing Character and Place

  • The Tea House Theatre Cafe 139 Vauxhall Walk London, England, SE11 5HL United Kingdom (map)

Guest author: Diana Evans

Themes of identity are the DNA of fiction, questioning and illuminating who we are and the way we think about ourselves. Whether it’s an exploration of the self in a social context or a broader investigation of our cultural and political inheritance, how can a writer find creative ways to draw from this pool of ideas to enrich story, characterisation and place? In tonight’s salon our guest Diana Evans, the award-winning author of Ordinary People, will be joining Emma and Kellie to discuss what makes us the same, what makes us different, and how we can play with identity in our writing.
