Event details

Reserve your free place for our next WRAP Live! online event with Ashley Hickson-Lovence, whose stunning debut novel The 392 explores a 36-minute bus journey. He'll be in conversation with poet, academic and Nottingham Creative Writing Hub member Dr Becky Cullen.

A former teacher with an interest in inspiring reluctant readers, Ashley is currently writing about Uriah Rennie, the Premier League's first black referee. Becky will be asking about the stops on Ashley’s own writing route, as well as passing questions about black football players and referees, and what happens when you take up your position in the writing area.
