The Class Work Project is a workers’ co-op which publishes literature from poor and working-class writers, centring their experiences and knowledge in order to challenge elitist knowledge production – they do this through their media arm, Lumpen. They also run workshops on class within social movement spaces, in order to develop stronger understandings and facilitate effective mobilizations in the fight for radical social change.

Both Hannah and Dorothy, of The Class Work Project are editors of Lumpen, and creative practitioners in their own right. Dot is also a poet, who has published a series of poetry with Lumpen called See What Life is Like, please check it out on the website or come by the festival to buy a copy. Hannah is also a designer and illustrator, so if you like much of the design of Lumpen and their work over at The Class Work Project then buy a poster, buy a lumpen, buy a tee-shirt!

Hannah is also a facilitator of the training and workshops The Class Work Project hosts on class. If you’re interested in hosting one of our workshops, training sessions, or readings then please contact :
