Story Café Special: Waymaking
21st February at 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Urban or rural, near or far, women writers have enfolded ecological feminism, landscape and environment into their creative writing for decades.
Story Cafe Special: Waymaking, Thursday 21st February, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, Women only, 16+
At this Story Cafe Special we celebrate Waymaking, an anthology of women’s adventure writing published in October 2018.
Writers from the anthology will take us on a journey through their work, answering your questions about what it means for us to be women in the wilderness, our senses sharpened and our imaginations invigorated.
We’ll enjoy readings from the anthology by some of the writers themselves, followed by open, informal discussion about the themes of women in the landscape, adventure and women’s access to space and place.
Find out more about the Waymaking anthology here.
