A complete guide to climate writing- from inspiration to publication
Come along for this series of three climate-themed writing workshops, meet with your fellow writers, and get the chance to receive some feedback on your work.
This workshop aims to help you write and develop a climate piece from the very inception to its completion, guiding you through each step and allowing you to gain real, honest advice from the community.
Please book onto ALL THREE workshops. We will be taking this journey together - so please don't take a space if you can only make one week.
WEEK ONE: Inspiration. Senior Editor Emma will talk you through three innovative writing prompts to get your creative energies flowing. You will leave with the beginnings of three possible climate-inspired pieces, in whatever form of writing you prefer.
WEEK TWO: Editing. Bring your chosen piece along to the second week of workshopping, and LTTS Editor Leah will talk you through some easy-to-follow pointers on how to edit your own work and produce the best piece of content you can. You will learn our handy editing acronym to help you edit your pieces in the future.
WEEK THREE: Sharing. Having written and edited your own brand new piece, turn up to week three for a feedback circle. A document will be compiled with all new pieces and shared on the screen as we take it in turns to read and give feedback on each other's work, allowing you to make any finishing touches.
Submit your finished piece to LTTS for personalised feedback and the chance to be published on the LTTS website.
The workshop is completely free and open to all adults.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is suitable for participants aged 18+
It is open to any kind of creative writer: fiction writers, novelists, short story writers, poets, script writers… We give the prompts, and you decide in what form to respond.
The workshop will be themed around nature, the climate, and creative/constructive responses to crisis emotions. A passion for any of these things will be a great help!
Absolutely no writing expertise or experience required -- whether this is your first ever writing workshop or your 50th, all are welcome! Maybe you need a fresh breath of inspiration, or you're feeling a bit out of practice, or maybe you write everyday but you want to meet some more writers who care about the environment too... this is the workshop for you.
Writers who want to virtually meet with like-minded people in a welcoming online space!
Places are limited, so if you can't make the session please cancel your ticket so that someone else can take up the opportunity.
Workshops will be held on Skype.
Turning your camera on is not obligatory but is strongly encouraged, at least for introductions and sharing moments - sharing is easier when we all know who we're talking to!
Please email the organiser should you have any enquiries about accessibility.
The workshop will be facilitated by LTTS Editor Emma. Emma has been editing LTTS pieces since the project's inception, supporting both well-established writers and writing fledglings to get the most out of their work and have their voices heard on the climate crisis. She will be happy to provide personal feedback on any writing produced during the workshop via email.
