Join Sairish for a life writing workshop of creative writing exercises where you will record stories using parents/grandparents or other family members as an inspiration.

You will draw on old family stories/anecdotes to create a work of fiction or use objects, places and people with ties to family/heritage/the past to inspire a story.

Sairish Hussain is the author of Hidden Fires and The Family Tree, two multigenerational family sagas set in Bradford. She is a Bradford based author and Lecturer in Creative Writing. Her debut novel, The Family Tree, was published by HarperCollins and shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, the Portico Prize and The Diverse Book Awards.
