Community Climate Stories “Write Here Write Now”: Taster 4-6pm Tues 14 Sept

A write-in session hosted by Story Weaver Joana Avi-Lorie focused on community climate stories and #ownvoice for Scotland’s Climate Week and the European Day of Sustainable Community 2021

With this taster workshop, SCCAN’s Story Weaver Joana Avi-Lorie will host and facilitate a short but intense write-in session on community climate stories exploring #ownvoice.

Whether you’re an experienced writer, just starting or re-entering the written word as a means of communication about climate action, just bring your story with you and an appetite to sit with it for a while … with an opportunity for conversation with others and to learn about SCCAN’s Storytellers Collective.
