The Folio Academy Sessions, A Place Called Home

What constitutes ‘home’ - who decides what it is, how we create it, who is welcome - has long been a source of fascination for writers and artists


Robert Frost wrote that ‘home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in’. What constitutes ‘home’ - who decides what it is, how we create it, who is welcome - has long been a source of fascination for writers and artists; but now, as our world shrinks and people move around it more freely and often less willingly, it has also become an urgent political matter. The multi-award-winning novelist and playwright, Caryl Phillips, is joined by three others who share his interest: Booker Prize-winner, Penelope Lively; poet, playwright and librettist, Glyn Maxwell; and writer and cultural critic Maya Jaggi.
