Writing Women course, Ty Newydd Writer’s Centre Wales
Friday 20th May – Sunday 22nd May 2022
Through workshops and group discussions, this course will explore the various ways in which feminism can be translated to creative writing and literature. We will uncover elements of feminism in works by writers such as Zoë Brigley, Fiona Benson, Angela Carter, and Amber Sparks amongst others. During this course, we will embolden the women of fairy tale, myth, history, and our own lives and discuss what feminism means to us as writers. Using prompts and writing exercises, we will challenge misogynistic portrayals of women in creative work, bring the marginalised to the forefront, and give voice to the silenced. Writers of poetry, prose, memoir, and more are. All welcome!
