Event description

Description

NASA is currently aiming to settle the first human beings on MARS by 2030. Terra Two’s project designers suggest that writers, artists, musicians, philosophers and spiritual thinkers have an ethical responsibility to lend their voices to this far-sighted scientific experiment. Terra Two is an online magazine/archive which was officially launched at York St John in September 2017 in order to collate science-fictional contributions from YSJ staff, postgraduate students, undergraduate students and invited guests in the form of writing, music, visual images, games and podcasts. The aim of these collected contributions is to help create a sustainable future for human beings as well as the non-human plant and animal species we directly impact upon, both on Earth and off-world. For our magazine, see https://yorkstjohnterratwo.com. This year we are introducing a workshop series to develop and disseminate the ideas underpinning Terra Two, and we invite you to get involved with one or more! Workshops will be facilitated by one or more members of the Terra Two editorial team, and refreshments will be provided. This summer the Terra Two team will produce a printed catalogue which participants will have the opportunity to contribute to.

Workshop Six: Writing Workshop and Picnic at the T2/PollinationProject
Allotment

For this workshop, participants are invited to come dressed as their favourite SF character. You will have the opportunity to complete a writing task based on a science fictional extract and to discuss your responses. If you attended other workshop sessions, this is an opportunity to expand, edit and discuss work you have already begun. During the discussion, participants will share a picnic under the trees in the allotment shared space. For those who have participated in more than one workshop across the year, you will have the opportunity to share what you have gained from your involvement. This creative workshop can be used as a springboard for the August submission deadline for Terra Two. Pack lunches provided.
