 The Alt Write

Image1

Description

Our favourite writers move us and inspire our imaginations, our humanity, our understanding of the world.

But sometimes their writerly purpose can carry a little more bite. What is the role for the writer as agitator, provocateur and agent for change?

This all-star panel brings together four incredible writers and contrarians. With host Michael Williams, panellists Roxane Gay (Difficult Women, Bad Feminist), John Safran (Depends What You Mean By Extremist), George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo) and Brit Bennett (The Mothers) will discuss how they push against platitude, prejudice and power in their writing.

Are we living in a 'post-truth era of degraded language, where the integrity of words and meaning are under siege? Is it just the nature of language? And, in such an age, what, if anything, is the responsibility of the writer?

Come along to this timely discussion with a stellar line-up of intrepid and original thinkers.
