Peaceworks presents a Workshop with Anna De Vaul. Anna has lived and traveled extensively in Vietnam. At the workshop, she will share her experiences of living with the Other, understanding conflict and looking at an event like the Vietnam War from different perspectives. She will use photographs taken in Vietnam to show what war can do to a beautiful place. Anna has taught creative writing for a long time in USA and she has worked with undergraduates, pensioners, and adult writers as well. Her stories, microfiction, poetry, and articles have appeared in various journals and anthologies in the USA and abroad. She will talk to the participants about conflict writing and its conventions. The participants can also bring in their own understanding of conflict and write about what is closest to their hearts.
Anna holds an MA in the Teaching and Practice of Creative Writing (with Distinction) from Cardiff University and is currently doing a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of East Anglia.
