New Collaborations with Désirée Reynolds & Hive Young Writers

Desiree with group crop 2

Exciting to be working with Sheffield based writer Désirée Reynolds as well as Hive Young Writers, some of South Yorkshire's most exciting young writing voices. Eelyn Lee has invited both parties to collaborate with her on her film about Britihsness. Together they will be exploring notions of race, identity and belonging and through a process of writing, filming and interviewing will try to discover the meaning of Britihsness today. The film has been commissioned by Football Unites Racism Divides.

Désirée Reynolds is an author, broadcaster, creative writing workshop facilitator, DJ and mentor. Her first novel, Seduce, was published in 2013 to much acclaim from Peepal Tree Press. Her latest work is as editor of the anthology Writing As Resistance, University Of Sheffield, 2018. Désirée is also a trustee with Racial Justice Network.

Hive South Yorkshire is the hub for young writer (14-19s) activity in South Yorkshire including workshops, projects, competitions, publications, groups & open mic events.
