Getting the rage down on paper
Men and women sit in Norwegian prisons having committed crimes when they were furious. In prison many of them feel frustration and anger over the situation they have ended up in.
In collaboration with LitFestBergen the author Annette Mattsson, a teacher of writing in Bjørgvin Prison, and the author Eivind Riise Hauge, librarian in Bergen Prison, are arranging a writing course for the inmates with the festival theme “rage”. You can read some of the texts from the writing course in the festival’s programme catalogue and web page, and two of the course participants are coming to LitFestBergen to talk about what it means for them to be able to express themselves on paper.
The event will be in Norwegian.
