Switchboard I

19 November, 2017, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Come and try your hand on the old exchange, reminisce over the Mickey Mouse character telephone, or listen out for ghostly voices on the wires. Exploring the different voices that have been lost or found down the line, ‘Switchboard’ is a 3-part series of events exploring the literary legacy of the telephone. ‘Switchboard I’ will explore the cultural history of the telephone and inspire and support writers of all levels in the production of new creative work. Participants will also have the chance to share their work at ‘Switchboard III’, a live literary event on 23 November.

Led by Dr Sarah Jackson, New Generation Thinker and winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize for Poetry.


This event is part of the series How to lose and find yourself in words.
