Event W34

Ambient Literature

Writing Workshop

 – Cube

Join writer Tom Abba to make your own ambient stories from words, audio and objects. You will be introduced to writing techniques that will help you craft stories from the world around you, and rethink your relationship with the phone in your pocket. (It would be helpful, but not essential, to bring a smartphone.) The Ambient Literature Project brings a newly written piece, especially for Hay Festival: Words We Never Wrote, by Tom Abba and Alyssia White, exploring the meaning of writing, language and storytelling. This piece is set on the first floor of Richard Booth's Bookshop in the centre of Hay and will be accessible throughout the Festival. Two other works will be available – Kate Pullinger’s Breathe, and Duncan Speakman’s It Must Have Been Dark By Then.
