... creative writing workshops
Local writers could Get Creative and learn how to use news stories to inspire their writing at the TRAFFICKED project: a series of free creative writing workshops exploring the issues around human trafficking in the UK today.
To accompany the tour of MY MIND IS FREE, Sam ran a series of creative writing workshops for adults in London, Kent and Medway throughout autumn 2015.
Sam took attendees through a range of writing exercises all to get everyone thinking about human trafficking, and explore their responses to it through writing.
