Women Writing Dystopia and Apocalypse

November 20, 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Free

Why do writers choose to write about dystopia and apocalypse and how do contemporary women writers offer an alternative viewpoint on this trend? This event will allow schoolchildren to explore the long tradition of women’s dystopian and apocalyptic writing and show them some of the new ways creative writers are approaching this subject. How do they imagine survival and change after an apocalyptic event? How do they examine the traumatic impact on those who experience apocalypse? Schoolchildren can take part in a writing workshop with creative writers and take steps to begin your their dystopian or apocalyptic story.

Please note that this is an event for local schools, and is not open to the public. Please contact the organisers with any queries.
