The New Voices Wagon Project is a grassroots project which develops participants' skill and confidence as writers. Following a series of Saturday writing workshops, participants work with student volunteers to produce a published anthology of their writing. The project is directed by Zimbabwean writer and editor Agrena Mushonga in partnership with the Centre for New Writing.
In addition, the project:
- Provides a platform for self expression as well as an opportunity to explore the use of writing as a therapeutic tool.
- Is a vocational, income-generating venture or pastime for people from disadvantaged communities, including refugees.
- Benefits new or unheard voices and writers, particularly those of migrant communities.
