Zones of Avoidance at HMP Lewes

1 Comment

On the afternoon of Tuesday 10 November, Zones of Avoidance will be presented as part of Penned Up, a unique literature festival being staged within the walls of Lewes Prison. The work will be presented for prisoners using as much of the stagecraft as possible, such as video and audio, but without the stage lighting, (there being none). This will be followed by a Q&A / discussion. Penned Up, which, so far as we know, is the first literature festival in a prison, has been developed by LLL Productions and runs from 2nd – 12th November.

During the evening, there will be an event with Maggie Sawkins and poet David Swann, upstairs at The Elephant and Castle pub in Lewes, where the two writers will give short readings and talk about their work with marginalised individuals as well as their experience of working in Lewes prison earlier in the day. The event begins at 7pm. Details here »
