Writing Place Beyond the Binary: a writing workshop
In July I was invited by Women Talk Place and the Centre for Place Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University to run a one-off writing workshop exploring the non-and-beyond-binary parts of place. The gaps in the pavement and cracks in the walls; the ways we move through and talk with our surroundings - especially when they have not been designed with us in mind.
This was an all-genders event, particularly tailored to those of us who have had to navigate this binary-built world from a trans or non-binary or disabled or racialised or undocumented or some-or-all of these and more perspectives.
I hope this is the first of more, as it was clear that this is incredibly rich terrain - for those of us writing place and for place writing as a body.
