Careless is a raw, searing, insightful and incredibly funny coming of age story like no other. A story of female friendship, the care experience and following your dreams against all odds.

Dr Kirsty Capes works in publishing and, as a care leaver, is an advocate for better representation for care-experienced young people in the media. She recently completed her PhD under the supervision of 2019 Booker prize-winner, Bernadine Evaristo.

Kirsty will talk about the inspiration for Careless, other representations of the care system in literature, and will offer tips to aspiring writers who might be interested in writing stories inspired by their own life experiences.

Captions will be provided for this event.
