The power of words. Writing to inspire.
THURS WORKSHOP FULL; SPACES AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY.How do you write about something you are passionate about, what angers you, what makes you afraid, worried. How do you write in the era of the echo chambers and the polarized world. How can you write about anything else than global warming after you have looked at the basic science? Can you change the world, or nudge it into the right direction? How do you write about important issues that have been tackled millions of times — women’s rights, environmental issues, human rights, racism. Andri Snær Magnason made some ripples in Iceland with his book Dreamland, A self-help manual for a frightened nation. Recommended reading includes Rebecca Solnit, Svend Lindquist, Susan Sontag or any inspiring nonfiction of choice to share and explore.
