Event description
Join the Electrifying Women project for the launch of our creative writing anthology with readings and a drinks reception

About this Event

Since September 2019, the Electrifying Women project, based at the University of Leeds, has been running creative writing workshops in Leeds and London about the history of women in engineering, in conjunction with the Women's Engineering Society centenary in June 2019.

Led by Leeds-based poet and creative writing specialist, Hannah Stone, these workshops have inspired participants to create their own interpretations of the history of women in engineering, in the form of poems, plays and others.

Contributions from the workshops have now been compiled into an anthology, Electrifying Women: From Fact to Fantasy, edited by Hannah Stone, showcasing the brilliant responses.

You are invited to attend the launch of the anthology in the foyer of the Michael Sadler building at the University of Leeds, where there will be readings from the anthology by the authors themselves and a chance to get your own free copy, all alongside some wine and nibbles!

This phase of the Electrifying Women project is shortly drawing to a close and the launch of the anthology is a perfect way to say farewell. All those who have participated in any of our events are most welcome, along with those who would like to find out more about what we have been doing and might yet do!

If you are interested in helping the Electrifying Women project continue its work, earlier in the day there will be a volunteers' training event at Devonshire Hall from 1-5pm (with free lunch). More details and book here.
