This month as part of the Dare to Write? Academy Summer Classes, Paper Nations are offering aspiring writers the opportunity to join award-winning author Aminatta Forna for exclusive workshops tailored to developing their writing craft.

Aminatta Forna is an award-winning author and memoirist, with published titles including, Happiness, The Hired Man, The Memory of Love and Ancestor Stones, and a memoir The Devil that Danced on the Water. Her books have been translated into twenty two languages, with her essays appearing in Freeman’s, Granta, The Guardian, LitHub, The Nation, The New York Review of Books, The Observer and Vogue.

The two hour Writing Craft workshop, held on Zoom, will include writing exercises and Q&A access to Aminatta’s first class industry knowledge and expertise. It will be suitable for both emerging and experienced writers, providing insight on writing practice and craft and well as writing and publishing as a professional author.

Spaces will be limited to 30 writers. A number of scholarship places for both workshops have already been allocated to underrepresented writers in the South West of England.

Due to the anticipated popularity of this workshop, it will run twice. Please note that the content of each workshop will be the same so there is no need to book twice.
