The Ethics of Worldbuilding Workshop

Literature has a long history of orientalism and exploitation, and unfortunately some of that history still lingers. This workshop explores the ways writers can imagine new worlds and new stories without reproducing the same old problems. Eamonn Tee (Vaka Puaikura, Pākehā) and NZYWF Young Writer in Residence Ruby Macomber (Rotuma, Taveuni, Ngāpuhi; she/they) will help you find the tools to tackle the messy subjects, such as confronting colonisation (or always being expected to), using your own whakapapa in your writing, and telling stories for those on the margins.
