Our Wild Cemetery: Nature-allied Writing Workshops with Dal Kular.

A safe workshop space for women and people who identify as women.

Dal Kular is a writer, poet, facilitator, and ecotherapist-in-training, from Sheffield. She specialises in creative and nature-allied writing arts for healing and liberation. She believes everyone can write. Join Dal in exploring our relationship with and to the unique nature within Sheffield General Cemetery Heritage Park.

During the three ‘Our Wild Cemetery’ workshops and through uplifting writing activities inspired by poetry prompts and readings, Dal will guide you to ignite your imagination and to make your own pieces of ‘wild writing’ inspired by the Cemetery. By deepening your nature connectedness within the Cemetery and through your own and each other’s writings you’ll be encouraged to foster a sense of care for yourself self as beings of nature as well as a deeper care for nature.

These workshops centre the work of nature writers of colour and aims to decolonise traditional notions of nature writing. Participants will receive a downloadable nature-allied writing workbook after the workshops to continue their nature-allied journey at home. Suitable for all levels of writers including beginners.
