Oliver Thompson Building, City Uni, Northampton Square, 6.30 pm

Internationally renowned novelist and cultural historian Marina Warner, award-winning writer and journalist Dr. Julie Wheelwright will join writers shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Creative Non-fiction Award, Marina Benjamin, Olivier Kugler, Jack Underwood and Joanna Walsh.

The writers will be speaking about why they have chosen to write within creative non-fiction, a burgeoning form of literary work which often brings together such seemly disparate forms as poetry, philosophy, travel writing, memoir and reportage.Using narrative techniques often identified exclusively with fiction, they will explore through their own writing how and why this hybrid genre offers them the freedom to express their ideas and experiences that might previously have been limited to dramatic forms.
