Masterclass: Writing with Cultural Sensitivity

Zoom Masterclass with Abda Khan
  • Abda Khan
Date Tuesday January 31st 2023, 19:00 - 21:00 GMT
Location Online

Do you want to write about your own or other cultures, but worry that you may unknowingly perpetuate stereotypes, or that you may unwittingly fall into the trap of ‘cultural appropriation’?

This masterclass, led by author and creative writing tutor Abda Khan, is designed to help you to become more mindful when writing about ‘cultural’ issues. You will learn how to spot your own biases, gain an insight into why stereotyping is harmful, and be given top tips for how to avoid cultural appropriation.

The Masterclass will be delivered via Zoom webinar (19:00-21:00), so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

"These zoom opportunities are really helping to open my world and keep me inspired to write."

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."

"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
