STORIES OF TERRESTRIAL SURVIVAL. A CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP WITH JUANA ADCOCK
A free workshop in two parts, with the first taking place on Global Degrowth Day, coinciding with other events to share alternatives to growth based societies: www.degrowth.info/en/globalday
A range of challenges designed to stimulate the imagination will allow participants to find fun and unexpected ways to tell stories and express ideas. We use words as a tool for inspiration, delight and hope to reflect on some of our ways of being in the world, and share our findings. Participants have the option to have their stories and poems published on the Enough! blog or in the form of a zine.
The workshop will be led by Juana Adcock, a poet, translator and performer. Her Spanish-language poetry collection, Manca, explores the anatomy of violence in the Mexican drug war and was named by Reformas distinguished critic Sergio González Rodríguez as one of the best books published in 2014. In 2016 she was named one of the Ten New Voices from Europe by Literature Across Frontiers, and she has performed at numerous literary festivals internationally. Her English-language debut, Split (Blue Diode Press, 2019) was awarded the Poetry Book Society Choice.
