Flow Wellington brings her anticipated collection, GauTrained to the Wits Writing Centre (WWC).

This book is a retrospective journey of life in Johannesburg, looking at the dreams we are sold to the harsh realities one faces in order to make it in the big city. Wellington moved to Johannesburg in 2011 and discovered that all that glitters are definitely not gold. In her poems and stories, she takes us deep into the underbelly of Joburg and shows us how Gauteng eventually trains you in so many ways. Join the WWC for a discussion on migration, abuse, poverty and rising above adversity.
