Two linked writing sessions with Linda France, exploring the difficult theme of Climate Crisis (the second on Saturday 24 October at 14.30).
Linda France is Climate Writer with Newcastle University and New Writing North. Her reading of the Climate Crisis is that everything is connected – in the human and beyond-human worlds and our inner and outer lives, requiring both personal transformation and collective action. In these two workshops we will explore ways to tackle what can feel like an overwhelming, unwieldy subject to write about. By asking questions, framed as Why, What, How and Who, we can work on gaining clarity, defuse some of our anxieties and harness the reliable wisdom of our most authentic and strongest voice. Knowing ourselves and our demons better helps us take greater care of ourselves and others, enhancing our sense of connectedness and our capacity to meet challenge and change.
The first session (17 October, 14.30-17.00) will generate a new piece (or pieces) of writing, which can be worked on during the subsequent week to share and discuss in the second session (24 October, 14.30-17.00).
A link to enable you to attend (delivered via Zoom) will be sent in advance of the sessions.
