This workshop will invite a discussion of the varying political roles of women, considering the possible relevance of varying degrees of matrilineality and other factors shaping their political involvement across Asia.
This workshop will build your confidence by helping you to understand why speaking can make you anxious and how nerves can be counteracted. You will also learn the skills needed to structure, write, and deliver a speech.
In this intensive workshop, author and editor Jessica Friedmann shares practical tips and personal advice about life-writing, memoir, and what it means to tell your own story. Draw on your personal experiences to create a well-honed narrative; discuss the personal and political act of writing while female; and explore the practicalities of finessing, editing and pitching personal writing.
