Writing to learn: telling our stories of change

1st December 2020 - 14th December 2020


Are you working on positive social change in your community, in your country, in the world? Do you have a story to tell? Do you want others to learn from your experience? Using creative activities and approaches that have been tried and tested in the writing of the Barefoot Guides (www.barefootguide.org), this course will not only improve your writing skills but will enable participants to learn from each other’s stories by listening deeply and writing collaboratively. We will use a process called a writeshop, a collaborative writing process that draws on the experience, knowledge, creativity and expertise of all those involved. Participants do this through a set of guided activities that helps them to generate writing, individually and collectively, to write drafts, give and receive feedback, to revise and to publish. They are supported to draw out lively stories, reflections, lessons and ideas to share with others. https://www.barefootguide.org/writing-school.html

Live sessions will take place on both Tuesdays at 18:30-20:30 and Saturdays at 16:00-18:00.
