BAME Masterclass blog | Nadifa Mohamed


Nadifa Mohamed gave a masterclass at UEA on ‘Writing Violence: Literature as Reportage/Recovery’ and she began by sharing with the group how she came to write her debut novel Black Mamba Boy, for which she won the 2010 Betty Trask Award. The novel is a fictionalised account of her father’s experiences as a child and young man in Africa in the 1930s and 40s.

CHASE Creative Writing Residency day 5


We arrived on the moon last Friday.

"I know the world is meant to be round, but I ain't sure about this place."

There's a swimming pool I haven't yet swam in. There's a pool of inspiration and I haven't yet come up for air.

No need.

There are these people, different people, articulate and crazy and clever and full of colour and spit and I'm swimming around in it. It's a joy and it's a story and it's a lesson and it's unforgettable (though that might be tested in X amount of years).

For now though the conversation is open, discoverable, possibly impossible but impossible to curb.

I is they and you are we and we are together and we are alone.

And the work is of the highest standard. And the work is aiming higher and aiming laterally and climbing the mountain to our broken hotel and navigating the city and remembering the jungle and swimming the sea and landing on the island and loving fucking and vulnerability and burying our father while holding our queerness and helping the priest while staving back hunger and forgiving tyrants. And forgiving tyrants. And remembering the loved dead and so much more through poetry, where phones claim souls and mongrels reclaim their identity and we all howl at the moon.

So of course we are not really on the moon.

That would be silly.

But we are cosmonauts and this is our journey.


CHASE Creative Writing Residency day 4


Another sunny day in North Norfolk on the CHASE residency retreat. The lanes around the barn in which we are staying are full of blossom and the verges white with cow parsley. Crows caw loudly in the large horse chestnut in the field next door.    We are falling into a productive pattern of writing in the morning and classes in the afternoon. Today we had a masterclass on narrative in poetry and prose, followed by a workshop which featured a play set in an Iraqi car wash in Wolverhamption and the opening of an historical novel set in India which drips with atmosphere.    I have personally been working on the synopsis to my novel and have found the peace and quiet really useful for getting on with this hard task. Usually this would have taken me much longer than it has this week. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to be here

NDACA: The Heritage Story of the Disability Arts Movement


NDACA, the National Disability Arts Collection and Archive, is a £1-million Heritage Lottery Fund project which celebrates and preserves this history; the protests, songs and artwork of the individuals who were central to this unique movement. From the satirical cartoons of Crippen, to the subversive cabaret performances of ‘The Tragic but Brave Show’, NDACA tells these stories, bringing new digital and object meaning to the Disability Arts Movement.

On the Social in Architechture


With a focus on housing and public space, the first of three sessions co-organised by the ICA, the Architecture Space and Society Centre at Birkbeck (ASSC), and CHASE brought together practitioners, theorists, activists and students to try and answer what might at first seem like a trick question. ‘Where is the social in Architecture?’ Surely the answer is ‘everywhere’? After all, is there any aspect of architectural space and architectural practice which is not thoroughly social?

Contemporary British Collections Placement


My research at Goldsmiths is investigating the implications of the internet for contemporary poetry and poetics: as a primarily text-based medium radically shifting the coordinates of communication; as a catalyst for contemporary textual saturation; and, of course, as a digital space where poetry is read, published and disseminated.
