Writing as an act of rebellion, confession or reconciliation
|Wednesday 5th December||11:30-12:45||G11 3.60|
‘The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion,’ writes Albert Camus. How does his philosophy translate into writing practice in the 21stcentury? Can we really ‘shake the cage’ by writing about what concerns us in a world where judgment and political correctness can often overshadow artistic freedom?
Memoirist Anne Connor, writers Sophie MacNeill and Ingrid Woodrow discuss with Antony Dapiran.
