Creative Writing at Armley Mills
15th September 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A creative writing workshop led by Hannah Stone exploring the hidden history of women in engineering About this Event This creative writing workshop at the historic Armley Mills in Leeds offers participants the chance to engage with the stories of the extraordinary women who have been involved in engineering since the Victorian era.
This workshop has been organized by the Electrifying Women project, based at the University of Leeds, which aims to tell people about the long history of women in engineering. Led by creative writing expert, Hannah Stone, the two-hour workshop will involve several writing activities, which explore what it was like to be a woman in engineering, at a time when women’s place in the working world (but especially the world of industry) was constantly being challenged. This workshop is perfect for anyone with an interest in creative writing, women’s history and the history of engineering.
