WoW Fest 2015
May 1, 2015, 12:00 AM – July 1, 2015, 12:00 AM EDT
Writing on the Wall is a dynamic, Liverpool-based community organisation that coordinates projects and events that celebrate writing in all its forms. They work with a broad and inclusive definition of writing that embraces literature, creative writing, journalism and non-fiction, poetry, songwriting, and storytelling. Writing on the Wall works with local, national and international writers whose work provokes controversy and debate. They work with all of Liverpool’s communities to promote and celebrate individual and collective creativity.
Introducing ‘American Dreams’, WoW’s Star Spangled programme of spoken word, theatre, film, discussion and debate. From Wall Street to Water Street, Liverpool’s literary links to America, and specifically New York, are mapped out and explored in a celebration featuring New York/US based writers, Innovative Theatre and bang up to the moment Spoken Word artists. Join WoW on a transatlantic journey through the wild, strange frenzy of the shared maritime history of these two iconic port cities.
