Words on the Move II

Words on the Move II: An Afternoon of Readings and Discussions with Timberlake Wertenbaker, Catherine Grant, Valentina Castagna
Introduction by Marina Warner

Birkbeck College, University of London
17 June, 2017

Words on the Move II reflected on current developments in broadcasting literary works and explored contemporary approaches to acoustic media, particularly by women and about women. The invited speakers spoke about oral and sound experimentation in performance and drama, written or adapted for radio or new digital platforms. The workshop also asked, 'Can developments in the use of voice, 'spoken word' events, and the broadcasting of literary works inform the creative writing workshop as a collaborative and participatory space?'
