"Wanderings and Wonderings: some thoughts about what curiosity with our writing practices might be 'doing' or 'becoming'"

By Sue Spencer

Via Zoom 

Saturday 3rd August, 10am- 11.15am (BST).

Presenter: Sue Spencer 


"Wanderings and Wonderings" with Sue Spencer

For many years I have been grappling with an unease with the oft expressed dichotomy between research and practice – I see no reason why learning from my practice should not be valued knowledge. Recent stumbles into the world of research-creation have started illuminating a clearer direction of inquiry formed in relation to how I articulate what I am trying to do in my writing and art practice.

In this session I will share my excursions into posthuman feminism and my commitment to making connections that will enhance our capabilities to respond well to participants, be sensitive to the context of our work and our capacities to “think through” what we are doing and why.

This session is designed to be interactive, generative and conversational. I will offer short writing exercises that respond to some question setting from a range of scholars.

Please bring along poems/literature that inspire you and sheets of paper to write on. It is anticipated that this might be the start of mapping your insights and articulating core values. It is some further thoughts following my previous offering in October 2023 – come along to share thoughts or ask questions.

About the Presenter:

Since leaving institutional employment in 2020 I am learning to appreciate the opportunity of working in the margins. In the last three years I have developed a new practice supporting freelance creative practitioners in socially engaged work.

I offer clinical supervision and reflective practice spaces that enable processing of emotions, thoughts and feelings with the aim of increasing self-awareness and increased understanding of responses to the environments we find ourselves working within.

I am also exploring with a writing mentor (Ruth Charnock) the development of a hybrid piece of work that includes poetry, multimedia visual art and essays.
