Writing from the Margins with Otter Lieffe

3rd May 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Otter Lieffe is back in town and organising a creative writing workshop with us. Whether you’re completely new to creative writing or already quite experienced, there will be something for you.

What could a strong, diverse – even utopic – resistance movement look like and how could we create it together? How do we counter the various oppressions we face and how do we build alternatives? How can speculative fiction amplify the voices of marginalised people?

Speculative fiction has a powerful history of imagining other possibilities. In this workshop, Otter Lieffe, author of Margins and Murmurations, will share some of her writing techniques and hold a space for some creative, speculative fiction writing. Otter will invite us to dive into our visions of resistance and utopia and to turn some of those images into writing.

No experience of fiction writing is necessary to participate. The safety and comfort of participants will be a first priority throughout. During the workshop, participants are invited to share their work in pairs or to the group but at no point will there be pressure to do so. There will be paper and pens available but if you prefer working on a laptop or other device, please bring it along with you.
