How Does Self-Censorship Work For A Writer?

At a time of rising tension between the freedom of the artist and counter voices across Britain and Europe, Homerton is proud to host a public event with a stellar panel, to discuss the extent to which writers are limited in their creative expression. What responsibilities must writers consider, when freedom of expression is increasingly politicised and polarised?

This free event is organised by the European Alliance of Academies, a transnational network of art and literature academies and cultural institutions across Europe, advocating for the freedom of the arts. The UK is represented by the Royal Society of Literature, and the Chair of the RSL, Daljit Nagra, will moderate a panel which includes Marina Warner, Hungarian writer Réka Borda, and Czech author Bianca Bellová.
