Common People: An Anthology of Working-Class Writing

Spoken word

Common People: An Anthology of Working-Class Writing

Thursday 10 October
6.00pm

Tickets: £10 full price, £8 concession (plus booking fees)

Common People is a collection of essays, poems and memoir written by working-class writers.

These are narratives rich in barbed humour, reflecting the depth and texture of working class life. The anthology brings together 33 established and emerging writers who invite you to experience the world through their eyes.

Join anthology contributors Stuart Maconie, Lynne Voyce, Emma Purshouse and Lisa Blower for a discussion about their stories and what it means to be a working class writer.

Written in celebration, not apology, this anthology gives voice to perspectives that are increasingly absent from our books and newspapers. Common People ensures they are heard loud and clear.

Chaired by Jonathan Davidson.

Venue: Elgar Concert Hall, The Bramall
