IN CONVERSATION: Intan Paramaditha and Ziggy Zezsyazeoviennazabrizkie in conversation with Syd Moore

Intan Paramaditha is an Indonesian writer whose collection of short stories, Apple and Knife, re-writes traditional Indonesian folk tales through a feminist horror lens.  Syd Moore’s mystery thrillers are inspired by her research into the myths of Essex, where she grew up and lives.  Join us as these two extraordinary women meet to discuss their work, their different perspectives and what it means to re-write these old stories and myths with a contemporary, feminist slant.

Ziggy Zezsyazeoviennazabrizkie is Metal’s Writer in Residence for the Essex Writers House project, also from Indonesia (biog below).

SATURDAY 16 March 11am-2:30pm

WRITING THE SHORT FILM

The short film is often overlooked as a story telling medium, but it can be a great calling card for the new writer or those coming from other writing disciplines. This half day course run by Maria Solecki is designed to equip those new to writing short films. You’ll leave with an understanding of: the role of the short film; the role of the screenwriter; what makes a great short; and mistakes to avoid. We’ll explore why less is most definitely more- and why short form story telling can be just as powerful as other forms.

NetPark Digital Park Stories – Garden of Remember

Suggested Ages:  15years and above

Created by a writer, artist and illustrator working with Tony, Alan and Eddie who have all lived with dementia and a group of young students from Westborough Primary School.  Garden of Remember takes audiences on a tour of stories and past loves remembered and told in fragments in this moving and uplifting work.  Experienced via audio through an iPad, the work is not verbatim but captures through poetic written text and performed words both the current lives and remembered past of all those who contributed.

SATURDAY 16 March 7:30PM

I’M WITH THE BANNED

Throughout history books have been barred, banned and even burnt having incurred the wrath of the censors for the strangest of reasons. Many of them remain on the prohibition list in different parts of the globe today. Join writers Syd Moore and Daryl Easlea as they reprise their celebrated and entertaining show about silenced stories and their story-tellers.
