Newvic logo Brave New Voices is a project based around the exploration of slang: what it's about, why we use it and how it functions differently in different cultures.
Nrich Our starting point was the novel Bar Balto by Faïza Guène. A whodunit, with an alternating series of 11 very different voices. It's a lot of fun and highlights what it takes to bring to life voices that straddle different cultures.
  With the novel in mind, students have started to create and develop their own characters and voices, loosely based on the idea of a whodunit - writing in mother tongues and English, drawing on characters and experiences from outside the UK, exploring the craft of translation and looking at how we can make these characters speak to a British audience. 

As well as being mentored by Sarah Ardizzone, an award winning translator and being privileged with a special session from Faïza herself, there has also been a visit from former Live Magazine editor, and bilingual slangsta, Cleo Soazandry and on the 4th March the students were also lucky enough to visit the magazine which is based in Brixton. Next week Monday, the 25th March, we look forward to a very special visit from the slang lexicographer and authority on the history swearing, Jonathon Green, aka the King of Slang 



The story we create will be recorded and performed live at the PEN projects showcase event at Free Word Centre and Faïza will be there to see how well we have done.

Although you may have missed a few of the exciting events that have already taken place it's still not too late to be a part of this great opportunity to write creatively and be mentored by world renowned, award winner writers.

Hope to see you on Monday 25th March.
