CCRI Collaborative Writing

Following 2020’s occasional series, ‘Corona Conversations’, we’re creating regular opportunities this year for the Sea-Cry community to write together, to write with: to write with what’s happening in and around us in our different places (including, but not only, Covid and its effects), to write with our multiple encounters with the human, non-human and more-than-human, to write with love and with loss, with hope and despair, with the forces and affects that are working in and on us. We’ll write with all these and more, with each other: “Writing with”, writes Claudio Moreira, “allows for the breaking and remaking of worlds” (Diversi et al, p. 6). We’ll write into these creative-relational encounters and see what happens.

These events will happen monthly, hosted and facilitated by Jonathan Wyatt. The timings make allowances for participation across different time zones. Feel free to join occasionally or to commit to all or a few. There will be a maximum of 15 places each month. Dates and booking links below.

All times are UK:

Wednesday 17 February, 14:00-16:00 Tuesday 16 March, 08:00-10:00
Wednesday 14 April, 14:00-16:00 Tuesday 11 May, 08:00-10-00

Wednesday 9 June, 14:00-16:00
