What’s Your Story? Shaping the stories of past, present and future
Girls Write Up is for anyone who has felt limited by their gender and wants to understand how language can be used to liberate and empower. It is an inclusive event open to all teens.
Over the day, authors, journalists, activists, artists, poets and other creative thinkers will share the ways they have used their writing to define their identities and shape the world around them. The program explores the relationship between language, gender and power, and the effects of unconscious bias on our sense of self. Girls Write Up gives participants the opportunity to discover their own creative voice, equipping them with the skills and the confidence to use it.
To be held at the State Library of WA on Thursday 19 July, Girls Write Up will feature presentations, panels and hands-on workshops by a range of inspiring writers including Candy Bowers, Charlotte Guest, Zainab Syed, Regina Akora and Alicia Tuckerman.
