Thursday 25 November 10:00 am UK time - 12:00 pm UK time

In this workshop Siphokazi will share insights into the ways we can extend and explore form across different mediums by re-thinking the relationship between the writer/reader and performer/audience. As the world keeps changing, so do the means through which people are able to access our work. Siphokazi will share insights from her practice, and other exciting examples, on how we can adapt and even lead within that rapid change, allowing our work to find new life on multiple platforms.


This workshop is for a small group of emerging women writers from the UK and South Africa. If you would be interested in claiming one of the UK places, please email with a short outline of how the workshop will benefit your writing at this stage. Deadline for expression of interest is 1 pm on Monday 22nd November. The workshop will take place on Zoom, you will be emailed joining instructions after we have confirmed your place.

We welcome authors who identify with our aim of celebrating and supporting women’s writing in ways that reconcile with their understanding of their own gender identity. This includes trans women, non-binary and cis women writers. We do not require any statement beyond an author’s self-identification and interpret a booking or expression of interest as confirmation of that identification.
