Ōtepoti Writers Lab - WRITING WITH ANCESTORS

7 April 2022 7:00pm

Rushi Vyas is back in the facilitator seat, this Thursday 7th April from 7pm at Ōtepoti Writers Lab. It's online, so join us no matter where you may be writing from!

The theme? WRITING WITH ANCESTORS. Ancestors of kin. Ancestors of kith. Literary/artistic ancestors.

In this session, we will talk about different modes of relation to ancestors of different kinds and how those connections show up in our writing—in story, in style, in why we write. We will read excerpts from Divya Victor, Ruby Solly, Sumita Chakraborty, and others. We will write from different prompts around ancestors—the ones we cherish, the ones we struggle with, the ones we never knew.

If you're keen to join the session, simply send us a DM or email hjkilkelly@gmail.com
