How to write about climate change with Lynn Buckle
Join Lynn Buckle, experienced tutor and author of What Willow Says and The Groundsmen (époque press), for an online workshop exploring how to integrate positive climate solutions into your writing.
Lynn teaches regular creative climate writing courses for youth and adult writers and facilitates the climate writers’ group at the Irish Writers Centre, gathering writers of all genres who are interested in writing and affecting change for a positive future.
In this friendly session, Lynn will guide you through exercises and discussion that will give you the tools to address climate change in your writing:
- Hear about positive climate solutions – what they are, where to find them, and how to weave details effortlessly into your creative writing
- Learn how to balance scientific facts with imagination, compassion and creativity when writing about environmental issues
- Discuss how your writing can help affect change, no matter your chosen genre or level of experience
This workshop is open to anyone interested in writing in a time of climate change; whether you are looking to tackle big issues in your work, or simply interweave subtle solutions into the backdrop of your stories. You don’t have to be a climate change expert to take part! This session is open to writers of any genre of level.
The workshop will take place online over Zoom, and information about how to join in will be sent by email a few days before the event.
