This one day symposium sets out to examine the contemporary danger of words as it affects exiled writers. It will interrogate diverse aspects of the 'Danger of Words' from denying exiled writers the freedom to write about the ills in their societies, to the manipulation of words, as it affects exiled writers, by dark and sinister forces in our established democracies.

Featuring Annie Holmes and Olumide Popoola: To find a story and not to tell it.

Tickets available here.
