Girls Write Up Brisbane!

Monday, September 18, 2017

I'm thrilled to be running a character workshop as part of Girls Write Up in Brisbane! The event is being held on Friday 24 November from 8.45am to 3.45pm at the State Library of Queensland, and there's an awesome line up of presenters.
Girls Write Up is for anyone who has felt limited by their gender and wants to understand how language can not only constrain but also be used to liberate and empower. It is an inclusive event open to all teens aged 12–18. 
Over the day, authors,  journalists, activists, artists, poets and other creative thinkers will share the ways they have used their writing to define their identities and shape the world around them. The program of panels and practical workshops explores the relationship between language, gender and power, and the effects of unconscious bias on our sense of self. It unpacks the ways that the female voice has been devalued in literary and popular culture, and gives participants the opportunity to discover their own creative voice, equipping them with the skills and the confidence to use it.
