Laura Fish, Dorothea Smartt and Kadija Sesay will read from and discuss their work in acts of her-story and her-itage.
Laura Fish, Dorothea Smartt and Kadija Sesay are renowned for their literary inventiveness, activism, and the new perspectives they create in writing that centralises black women's lives. Their work makes interventions into representing experiences such as: the care system, queerness, enslavement narratives from black British perspectives, through their collections of poetry, and in historical fiction.
The three writers will talk about their art and craft - how as black women writers in Britain today they tap into many aesthetic and diasporic routes - in conversation with Deirdre Osborne (Reader in English Literature and Drama at Goldsmiths, University of London). They will read and discuss excerpts from their work and take questions from the audience.
