Description

Rife: Twenty-One Stories from Britain’s Youth
Tue 26 November 2019, 19:00-20:00
Waterstones (Union Street Entrance)
£8/£6/£4.50 / FREE for 24 and under (booking required)

£4.50 PARTNER RATE is for staff, students or members at the following organisations: Arts Council England, Bristol City Council, Business West, University of Bristol and UWE.


It has never been harder to be a young person in Britain. One in four people under 25 are affected by mental illness and over half of the people under 25 have looked for advice on homelessness. University fees are rising, job opportunities are drying up, buying a house is out of reach for all but a privileged few. However, this generation is noticeably absent from opinion columns, comment pieces, and news reports in the mainstream media. Rife: Twenty-One Stories from Britain’s Youth is here to change that with powerful and passionate essays from writers under the age of 24 based in Bristol and beyond.

The anthology of passionate young voices that has been curated by Nikesh Shukla, editor of the acclaimed bestseller The Good Immigrant, and Sammy Jones, written content Editor at Rife, an online magazine for young people run by young people and produced by Watershed.

Joining Nikesh and Sammy are contributors Mariam Khan (My Body, My Choice) and Malakaï Sargeant (The Latte Drinker That Spilled the Tea) to discuss their stories and just some of the topics featured in the wider collection: from race and equality to money and education.
