or Pay What You Can

Black Lives Matter and the killing of George Floyd have highlighted continued inequalities in the US and UK. Part of our history is problematic. Artefacts associated with aspects of our dark, taboo or problematic past have been handpicked by the curatorial team at Colchester Museum. In this online writing workshop you will work with these objects, guided by bestselling novelist, Syd Moore, to devise a unique piece of creative writing as an imaginative response.

Syd Moore is the author of the Essex Witch Museum Mysteries (Strange Magic, Strange Sight, Strange Fascination) featuring Rosie Strange, and two previous mystery books, The Drowning Pool and Witch Hunt.

For nine years prior to writing Syd was a lecturer, worked extensively in the publishing industry and presented Channel 4’s book programme, Pulp. She was the founding editor of Level 4, an arts and culture magazine, and co-creator of Superstrumps, the game that reclaims female stereotypes and the founder of The Essex Girls Liberation Front.
