Please note that this workshop is exclusively for Black Cardboard Citizens members.

For Black History Month, writer Chantelle Dusette is running a workshop designed to help writers of colour connect to themselves and their story.

To provide a safe space for writers start thinking about their voice and finding strength in that, through exercises and group discussion.

There will space for solo writing and sharing where comfortable.

For those who know, and those who don’t know, which part of their story they want to tell.

Please note that this workshop has limited places so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
