Claire Carroll — Writing Our Futures Workshop

The Book Hire are hosting a ‘Writing Our Futures’ workshop on Thursday 11th July with Claire Carroll, author of The Unreliable Nature Writer — a collection of linked short stories that examine the interconnection of climate anxiety, surviving late capitalism and dealing with personal loss. 

Claire’s superb workshop explores how fiction can express the varied experience of living through the climate crisis. Claire will help participants explore how their writing can reflect the looming changes and complex emotional states brought about by global warming and the capitalocene. Suitable for writers of all experience levels, the session will involve a mixture of writing exercises, prompts and discussions (exploring how Claire comes to her rich stories and enthralling voice) with a non-obligatory option to share your work at the end.

After the workshop, there will be a separate event to celebrate The Unreliable Nature Writer, which will see Claire in conversation with another extraordinary short story writer, Naomi Wood. You can find out more about that separate event here.

Claire Carroll lives in Somerset, UK, and writes experimental fiction about the intersection of nature, technology, and desire. She is also a PhD researcher at Bath Spa and Exeter Universities, where she explores how experimental writing — particularly short stories and prose-poetry — can reimagine how humans relate to the natural and non-human world. Claire short stories and poetry have been published by journals including Gutter Magazine, perverse, Lunate Journal, The Oxonian Review, and Short Fiction Journal. In 2021, her short story My Brain is Boiling with Ideas was shortlisted for The White Review’s Short Story Prize, and her short story Cephalopod was the recipient of the Essex University & Short Fiction Journal Wild Writing Prize.

5:45pm doors for a 6:00pm start
FREE (suggested donation of £2 to cover refreshments)
Please bring a notebook or laptop to write in.
