Feminist Writing Workshop

February 18 @ 13:30 £25

Have you decided to start the year doing something just for you? Join us for a fun Feminist workshop where we learn, write,reflect and share, in person!

There is no pressure in the workshop to write “well”, to make sense, or to even have all the words for what we want to say! You don’t need to be a writer and there is no judgement on what is shared.

The facilitator will be giving a number of writing prompts throughout the workshop and will be encouraging each participant to write their immediate response to each prompt. There will be a focus on stillness, being present and safely exploring topics that might make us feel more free!

What will we do in the workshop?

We will begin with an exercise to help us feel present. We will then use writing prompts to explore, in a group, how Intersectional Feminist themes such as self-awareness, sharing power, courage and continuous learning effect our lives. We will share our writing and talk about the impact of what is shared. We can write in prose, use poetry, song lyrics,single words etc when sharing, and we will be working in a way that means that we won’t have time to over think it all!

What is reflective writing?

The purpose of reflective writing is to help you learn from a particular practical experience. It will help you to make connections between what you are taught and what you need to do in practice. You reflect so that you can learn. Through reflection, you should be able to make sense of what you did and why and perhaps help yourself to do it better next time.

What actually is feminism?

Feminism is an ideology and set of movements that work to achieve social, political and economic equality between the sexes. The feminism movement is articulated in ‘waves’, each of which has been rooted in the simple philosophy of women having equal rights to men.

What is intersectional feminism?

Intersectional feminism recognises that true equality between sexes can only be achieved by acknowledging how other forms of discrimination overlap with and exacerbate gender discrimination . Other forms of oppression or discrimination can be based on race, ethnicity, heritage, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, socio-economic background, age, disability and various other factors.

Important things to note:

Spaces are limited to 8 so that we can each have space and feel held.
This space is not intended to be therapeutic, but is a space to learn, have fun, listen and support one another. Please be mindful and respectful of what you share and its impact on others.
Please bring your own notebook/something to write in. Tea and coffee making facilities will be available.
The space aims to be as neurodiverse friendly as possible and we encourage breaks, stillness, moving around etc. Please do not feel you must sit still for the entirety of the workshop, in fact movement is encouraged!
Who is this space for?

Feminism is for everybody! All are welcome, especially individuals from marginalised gender identities and expressions.
