Please note: this event will be held online.

So much comes in waves, joy, misery, pleasure, nausea, illness, laughter. This workshop will explore what it might mean and look like to use waves as a shaping device for writing, as opposed to the convention of a narrative arc. This exploration will be made up of discussion, examples and writing exercises.

Participants may come with a project in mind that they can apply this thinking to, or use the exercises and material provided to start creating something entirely new. This workshop has stemmed from experiences of disability and chronic illness and so examples of how a wave structure might be used will refer to this background, however, the workshop will still be applicable and useful to those with a variety of different experiences outside of chronic illness and disability.

CONTENT WARNING: There will be discussion of chronic illness

This event is for ages 16+ and will be held online. You will need a good internet connection and a laptop/computer/mobile device to join us.
