Story has the power to humanise, create empathy, and take the reader into other worlds, both your own or that of others. Issues of social justice can be expressed in many ways: fiction or non-fiction, short story or novel, opinion piece or feature. Each genre has its specific demands and conventions, but share, in common, the art of story. The workshop will explore this art across genres, and include discussion, writing exercises, and feedback on projects.
