    Suitcase Stories
    Departures, arrivals, journeys… What stories emerge from migration and the contrasts between different worlds? And how do we go about telling personal and family tales? On this course, we will unpack truth, memory and imagination. We’ll explore the diverse possibilities of language, character, place and plot. And we’ll help you develop compelling narratives – fiction or non-fiction.
