Climate Crisis: Our Future, Our Story

About this Event

A writing and publishing workshop for youth aged 14-19

Good writing tells a story. Stories create change.

The world is waking up to the climate and ecological crisis. Youth are leading the way – but mainstream media has lagged behind. We need more writing and reporting on the climate crisis.

We need journalists to explain the science and the politics in everyday terms. We need essayists in town halls and schools, on beaches and mountaintops. We need fiction-writers to craft unforgettable plots and characters. We need poets to create metaphors that sting and motivate.

We need you!

Date: Saturday, October 26th & Sunday, October 27th

Time: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Location: Mount Saint Vincent University, McCain 105/105

Join the Understorey Magazine and Alexa McDonough Institute for Women, Gender and Social Justice for a two-day workshop on writing and publishing about the climate crisis. Work with authors, editors, journalists, and poets to learn the craft of writing, including journalism, memoir, essay, fiction, and poetry.

Participants will have the opportunity to continue working with facilitators after the workshop to edit their work and create an online space for publishing.

*** Virtual access to the workshop is also available for those who wish to attend but reside outside of the Halifax Regional Municipality.
