Keep an eye out because I'm hoping to run more workshops in the future!

For next year's NI Science Festival, I'll be pitching The Science of Fangirls alongside Ideas and Imaginations.

Northern Ireland Science Festival:
Ideas and Imaginations

I've been volunteering for the Northern Ireland Science Festival for the past few years, so I was super excited to pitch them a Creative Writing workshop this year! 

Working with Matt Kirkham, we put together a fun programme that explored scientific sources that might inspire your creative practice. 

You'll be able to download the workshop booklet from this page shortly. This means you can give the activities a go yourself.

Queen's University Belfast:
Introduction to Imagination

Presenting on Ekphrasis and Imagery 

This workshop was great to engage local school children with. Often they think of university as an intimidating place. I wanted to show them that university is a place where you can be reintroduced to your imagination. 

We looked at poetry and popular film posters to inspire our writing, working independently and in groups.
