Event description

Description

What do you feel when you think about climate change? Are there ways that writing about it can make a difference? This discussion and workshop run Bristol Climate Writers offers you the opportunity to hear readings from new climate change related work, and to try writing about climate change yourself – whether a short story, a poem, or a piece of non-fiction. Suitable for adults and teens.

Bristol Climate Writers was founded to support writers of all genres who write about climate change, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. They meet monthly for discussion and critique. The group also provides public workshops, in which participants take part in guided exercises and produce pieces of climate change themed writing during the workshop, as well as hearing new climate-related writing, and discussing the rationale for writing about climate change.

Ysgrifennu am newid yn yr hinsawdd – Dydd Sul Ebrill 29ain am 12.00yh yn Stafell Ddarllen Mark Waghorn.

Beth yw’ch barn chi am newid yn yr hinsawdd? Oes yna ffyrdd ble gall ysgrifennu wneud gwahaniaeth? Cynhelir y drafodaeth a’r gweithdy hwn gan Bristol Climate Writers a bydd cyfle i chi wrando ar ddarlleniadau allan o waith sy’n gysylltiedig â newid hinsawdd ac i chi eich hun geisio ysgrifennu am newid hinsawdd – boed yn stori fer, cerdd neu ddarn o waith ffeithiol. Yn addas i oedolion a phlant yn eu harddegau.

Sefydlwyd Bristol Climate Writers i gefnogi ysgrifenwyr ym mhob genre sy’n ysgrifennu am newid yn yr hinsawdd gan gynnwys ffuglen, ffeithiol a barddoniaeth. Maent yn cyfarfod yn fisol er mwyn trafod a beirniadu. Mae’r grŵp hefyd yn cynnal gweithdai cyhoeddus pan fydd cyfranogwyr yn cymryd rhan mewn ymarferion a chynhyrchu darnau o waith ar thema newid yn yr hinsawdd yn ogystal â chlywed gwaith newydd a thrafod y rhesymau dros ysgrifennu am newid yn yr hinsawdd.
