The pen is mightier than the sword

University House - Room G05
Saturday 19 October 2019 (15:00-16:00)

Passionate and well-articulated ideas can change the world for better or worse. Good writing inspires openness, thinking, talking, and action.

We ask our panel to share with us stories, examples and extracts of writing that inspired positive change.

Chaired by Julie R Goddard, Psychologist, MasterCoach and YA fiction author.
