Beats By Dr. Dre and #Merky Books Present “How To Write It” Your Guide to Tell Your Story.
Following the release of the #Merky Books “HOW TO” series, Beats by Dr. Dre (Beats) and #Merky Books have teamed up on three empowering roundtable discussions. Each one is themed around a different book in the series: “How To Write it” by Anthony Anaxagorou, “How To Build it” by Niran Vinod and Damola Timeyin and “How To Change IT” by Joshua Virasami. Designed to inspire and encourage the next generation to unlock their potential and provoke change, each discussion delves deeper into the subjects that are impacting youth culture at the moment.
Hosted by Dotty (Apple Music’s lead cultural curator and Apple Music host), the roundtable includes the author alongside leading established experts including Lavinya Stennett (founder of the Black Curriculum), Tanya Compas (youth worker and activist), Joy Crookes (singer/songwriter), Bolu Babalola (writer of Love In Colour) and Grace Beverley (founder of TALA).
In this second discussion of the series we see Dotty, Joy Crookes, Bolu Babalola and Anthony Anaxagorou discuss different styles of writing music and books, using flow to add more words to a story, approaching the writing process, inspirations, challenges, occupational hazards, owning your narrative, authenticity, and material they wish they had written.Check it out here.
