Hot Desk Edition #1


Event Status

After a long and difficult year in lockdown, we’ve been delighted to welcome our first intake of 2020 Hot Desk Fellows back to the Wheeler Centre, where they’ve been busily working away on their projects – ranging from screenplays and fiction, to poetry collections and graphic novels.

As they near the end of their ten-week fellowships, settle in for a drink at the Moat, and discover writing from Alex Creece, Georgia Kartas and Natasha Hertanto.

Unfortunately Diane Vu and Lou Garcia-Dolnik are no longer able to appear at this event.

The Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowships are supported by the Readings Foundation and Just Pretending theatre group

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, venue capacity is unfortunately limited. We will not be able to accommodate walk-ups or a waitlist as may have been the case in the past.
