Bloc Party with Manon Stefan Ros

Bloc Party!

Join Manon as she reads from her Creative Response to her Writer On The Bloc Residency and hear from participants who have taken part along the way.

This closing celebration event is a moment to reflect on the Writer On The Bloc residency, what the artists have learned, what the community and audience have developed or learned and what WoW staff have noticed and seen throughout the community-focused creative residency.

You’ll hear from the writer’s Creative Response to the residency, an opportunity for them to put into words their thoughts on the experience, a reflection on what they’ve talked about with our community and summing up how they’ve worked with the community to develop their writing.

You’ll also hear exciting new voices who have had their work looked over by Manon through the One-to-One’s, who will share the work they developed through the residency.

Manon Steffan Ros is a novelist, scriptwriter and columnist. She works primarily through the medium of Welsh, but her works have been translated to English, Catalan, Arabic, Polish, Spanish and French. Her novel, Llyfr Glas Nebo, won Welsh Book of the Year, and she has won the Tir Na N’Og prize for children’s fiction five times.

This has been made possible with support from The National Lottery Reaching Communities Fund, Liverpool City Region Covid-19 Emergency Funding and The Steve Morgan Foundation.

This event will include Closed Captions.
