The Naomi Mitchinson Memorial Lecture is hosted annually by Scottish PEN and the Edwin Morgan Centre for Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow. This year the lecture will be presented by award-winning author Zoe Wicomb. She is a South African author living in Glasgow and will read from her latest novel October.

In ‘Writing and the Stranger’ Wicomb will consider some of the ways in which foreignness is figured in writing as well as the strangeness inherent in the aesthetic experience. She will revisit her own views on setting fictions in a foreign country. The evening will be chaired by Louise Welsh. It’s a free event.
