Discovering the power of your story

Join Emily (She/They) who is the Youth Empowerment Director of Comics Youth to delve into the world of storytelling and change making! You will learn how to apply clear techniques to your writing to help influence, empower and encourage others to take action and support your cause. Your story is a powerful one and it can, and does, make systemic change happen- You just have to know how. Bring a pen and some paper and get stuck into freewriting, editing and creative writing around how you experience the world and how you wish to make change. There are no limits here! Whether you are entirely new to writing or a complete professional, this workshop is for you.
