Creative Writing Workshop - Women Engineers: from fact to fantasy

Hosted by the LSE Library

The Women's Library (4th floor), LSE Library, United Kingdom

This creative writing workshop at the Women's Library at LSE offers participants the chance to engage with the stories of the extraordinary women who have been involved in engineering since the Victorian era. This workshop has been organized by the Electrifying Women project, based at the University of Leeds, which aims to tell people about the long history of women in engineering.

Led by creative writing expert, Hannah Stone, the two-hour workshop will involve several writing activities, which explore what it was like to be a woman in engineering, at a time when women’s place in the working world (but especially the world of industry) was constantly being challenged. This workshop is perfect for anyone with an interest in creative writing, women’s history and the history of engineering.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science (@LSELibrary) was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
