Has a work of fiction ever changed the way you see the world around you? Could this change in perception influence the way you or others interact with society? Is a work of fiction influenced by its social context, or is it the other way around?

Join this lively debate based on the question ‘can fiction generate social change?’ that formed the topic of the University of Birmingham’s Postgraduate Writing Competition 2015. Our panel will be welcoming questions and comments from the audience and the event will celebrate the winners of this year’s Writing Competitions with a short awards presentation.

To submit a question to the panel in advance please email the College of Arts and Law Student Experience Team on calengagement@contacts.bham.ac.uk.
