Join novelist Ellen Wiles for a reading and writing workshop exploring the work of Italy's most famous contemporary novelist, Elena Ferrante, and to experiment with your own creative writing, inspired by Ferrante's work and the Estorick's collection. No creative writing experience necessary to participate! To get most out of the reading workshop, we encourage you to read My Brilliant Friend or any other novels by Ferrante in advance.

Ellen Wiles is a writer, scholar and literary curator. Her first novel is The Invisible Crowd, and she is also the author of Saffron Shadows, a book about Myanmar, and a forthcoming book about live literature. She has an MA in Creative Writing and regularly leads writing workshops.
