Take a closer look at writers who have used their personal stories as carriers for a wider message of change and social, political critique. In this workshop, Australian-Egyptian writer, poet, theatre performer and educator Lamisse Hamouda will guide you through a series of exercises to bridge the personal with the political in your writing.

NOTE: Lamisse has constructed this workshop to be targeted towards 16-25 year-olds.
