Long time no see.......
When I started this blog I really wanted to have a conversation. That was it really, nothing more. I just wanted a space to discuss the things I liked and share that with others. The more I can talk about literature the better! Starting this blog has really allowed me to connect with many people which I will be forever grateful for. Even with the obstacle of my full time job and its workload; advocating and discussing Black British writing will always be my passion.
With that said I am happy to announce a new project that I am starting (trialling....) - The Black Applause Podcast Series! It will be my contribution to the conversation around Black British writing and other topics related. I have always enjoyed podcasts as an avenue to convey opinions and to educate yourself. The podcast series will be an extension of the blog, I will discuss books that I am reading, and as always I'll provide criticism.
I am quite a private person, so the idea that my voice is now flowing in the ether that is the internet freaks me out a bit, but I hope it will be worth it....or I can just delete them
Here is episode one!! An introduction to the series and my honest thoughts on Black British writing. Transcipts also available here
