This workshop is for writers, activists, and those who would like to write and/or change something they feel passionate about, but have never had the chance to start.
Join Ama Josephine Budge for a stimulating writing workshop that explores how to write, read and think about science fiction as activism.
With a focus on worldbuilding we will take sci-fi as a point of departure and consider the politics and potentials of centring protagonists, storylines and realities that remain both oppressed and marginalised by Western patriarchal societies. You’ll have the opportunity to play with writing microfictions and mapping out a speculative universe as well as discuss some pre-reading in small groups.
No prior experience necessary– Black, people of colour and LGBTQ+ are particularly welcome to join.
