Tŷ Newydd Weekend Writing Course: Writing Women: Feminism in Poetry and Prose
**POSTPONED DUE TO COVID 19**
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. Writers of poetry, prose, memoir and more are all welcome.
