The Changing Wor(l)ds programme aims to effect positive change in writing, publishing, and research, by exploring ways that literature can bring about social change for disenfranchised individuals and communities and co-creating opportunities with writers’ groups, activists, and publishers. In its first two years it has developed an active network of publishers, literary organisations, writers, researchers, activists, and cultural practitioners, and has run a series of events including 2019’s Changing Wor(l)ds Festival featuring Booker Prizewinner Bernardine Evaristo.
The Postcolonial Studies Centre looks forward to working with a resident who can develop their portfolio of work while enabling access to literature and culture in Nottingham through dissemination of their work, the organisation of public events, and weekly small salon, or conversation, events.
