Linda Shallcross Interview at Ink of Light Baha’i Writers’ Festival

November 4, 2020, in Videos > Interview, by

This interview from the Ink of Light Baha’i Writers’ Festival 2019, features author, Linda Shallcross.

Ink of Light is an annual festival that explores and celebrates the work of Baha’i writers and creatives, who all come together to share ideas, learn from one another, and celebrate creative expression.

Linda joined the Baha’i Faith when she was 17 – many years ago! Since then, she has been guided by the social justice and human rights dimensions of the Faith leading her to work in areas providing support to those who are most disadvantaged in terms of their lack of access to employment, education, and services. This has taken her into areas of action research based on the experience of those who are adversely impacted by systemic problems. Linda has a long list of academic publications regarding these issues and in the last 10 years has become a renowned expert in workplace bullying. She runs a business providing legal opinions for lawyers on psychological health and safety issues which keeps her very busy! Linda is keen to finish a couple of books she is working on, one in the social work area about children in care, another on workplace bullying, and another about the lives of everyday Baha’is in walking the spiritual path with practical feet.
