Write Purpose, Write Hope

About This Event

Sixth form students from across Belfast will gather at Ulster University, Belfast campus to explore the power of writing to promote understanding, generate dialogue and encourage positive engagement with the challenges faced by young people today.

With workshops facilitated by award-winning writer Sue Divin (Truth Be Told and Guard Your Heart), this event will offer participants an insight into the author’s work and inspiration, as well as opportunities to develop their own writing skills.

In the author’s note on Guard Your Heart, Sue states ‘Conflict dehumanises the ‘other.’ Stories connect us to the ‘other’.

I write because fiction is a powerful tool for creating empathy, and empathy is a powerful tool for creating peace.’

This is an invitation-only event delivered in partnership with Ulster University.
