White Rabbit: The Future

White Rabbit are looking for writers, particularly (but not exclusively) those who have a personal connection, directly or indirectly, personally or via friends and family, with the refugee experience. They are looking for fiction stories of around 1000 words on the theme of The Future.

The White Rabbit team of actors and writers will read the selected stories at Toynbee Studios on Friday 23 June. Selected writers will be given a free ticket for themselves plus two guests, as well as food and drink at on the night. All ticket proceeds from the event will go to Greenwich Refugee Aid.
