This month, we are thrilled to welcome award-winning author and memoirist Aminatta Forna to the Dare to Write? Academy stage, where she will host a series of online workshops and talks for writers and readers of all levels of experience.

There are four fantastic events on offer:

    • a two-week Masterclass in Advanced Fiction and Memoir for writers who have a substantial project in progress (i.e. a novel, nonfiction manuscript, or similar),
    • two expert Craft Workshops*,
    • and a chance to ask Aminatta your burning questions during a Q&A style ‘In Conversation’ session.

Find out more and book your place now! Head to the Dare to Write? Academy programme overview. The Masterclass and Craft Workshops have limited places that are sure to go quickly, so book soon to avoid disappointment!

Aminatta Forna is an award-winning author and memoirist, with published titles including, Happiness, The Hired Man, The Memory of Love and Ancestor Stones, and a memoir The Devil that Danced on the Water. Her books have been translated into 22 languages, with her essays appearing widely, including in Granta, The Observer, and The New York Review of Books. She has been a judge for awards including, the Bailey Prize for Women’s Fiction, the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award, and the International Man Booker Prize.


*Please note that due to the expected popularity of the Craft Workshop, we are running the same session on two dates in late July.
