Alternative Aberdeens

November 21, 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This is an online event.

Come along to this online creative writing workshop and ‘in conversation’ event and be inspired to imagine alternative pasts, presents and futures in Aberdeen.

In the afternoon (16:00–18:00) you can attend a creative writing workshop, giving you the opportunity to create different kinds of alternative worlds with the guidance of professional authors and spoken word artists.

Then in the evening (18:30–19:30) authors will be ‘in conversation’, discussing their writing practice, how they create alternative worlds in their own work, and answering audience questions. Writers are Jane Alexander, author of two acclaimed speculative fiction novels, Helen Lynch, writer of short fiction with a historical twist, and Mae Diansangu & Hanna Louise (spoken word duo behind Hysteria, Aberdeen-based showcase for alternative voices).

You can attend one or both events. Suitable for participants of age 15+.

This event is part the series ‘Alternative Aberdeens: Past, Present and Future’ organised by the University of Aberdeen.

In partnership with

Authors/spoken word artists: Jane Alexander, Mae Diansangu & Hanna Louise, (Hysteria), Helen Lynch; Powis Community Centre.
