Online writing course on Feminism in Poetry and Prose
Over the course of three sessions online, 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.
This virtual course will be delivered over 3 separate sessions:
Tuesday 7 June (8.00 pm – 9.30 pm)
Thursday 9 June (8.00 pm – 9.30 pm)
Tuesday 14 June (8.00 pm – 9.30 pm)
Following this, participants will have opportunity to submit a set amount of writing for detailed 1:1 feedback over email, from Natalie Holborow and myself.
