Workshop: Creative Responses to the Climate Crisis
Creative responses to the climate crisis - a free writing workshop
Monday 28th September, 5.30-6.30pm. Workshops will be held over Zoom.
Come along 45 minutes of climate-themed writing prompts followed by a 15-minute sharing and networking session at the end to meet with your fellow writers and get the chance to receive some feedback on your work.
At the end of the hour, you will go away with fresh writing ideas and (we hope) some ways to stay hopeful and creative even in the face of the climate emergency. You will also have met some fellow writers who care about the planet, and had the chance to hear and respond to some of their work (as well as potentially sharing your own).
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 Zoom.
Turning your camera on is not obligatory but is strongly encouraged (at least for half the session), as sharing is often easier when we feel we 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 nature writing produced during the workshop via email.
