The Survivor Arts Community presents an online creative writing workshop for self-identifying female survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse. This includes cis women, trans women and non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experiences of women. An experienced support worker will be present. This event is suitable for people aged 18+.

Let's write about plants! This workshop will be run by poet, nature writer, and artist Heather H. Yeung. Heather will give space, time and guidance to help participants write poems or stories in response to botanical objects from the beautiful Victorian herbarium collections at Dundee. No previous writing experience is required – only interest!

Through guided exercises, discussions in response to different objects and close reading, we will move from ideas and inspiration through the first and second draft stages. The workshop will give space and time for you to connect with other participants, explore different ways of looking at and writing about plant life, and be inspired.
