Girls Write Up is a daylong festival for teens aged 12–18 that teaches empowerment through writing and sharing stories; explores the relationship between language, gender and power; and examines the effects of unconscious bias on our sense of self.
Girls Write Up Brisbane 2017 will feature speakers including Candy Bowers, Michelle Law, Brodie Lancaster, Yen-Rong Wong, Nayuka Gorrie, Steph Bowe, Bri Lee and Sam George-Allen. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a practical workshop, focusing on skills such as slam poetry, character, and writing from life.
