The aim of the workshop is to guide the participants into acknowledging their bodily feelings and emotions relating to climate change. In this workshop, we present our practices for thinking with climate change and guide the participants into creative writing exercises. The exercises are carried out both indoors and outdoors, in interaction with the local weather. By intentionally engaging with the bodily feelings and emotions stemming from ecological crises, and articulating them through writing, we can clear out space for action. We provide the participants with examples of our own engagements with writing and reading in posthumanist modes. A list of further reading in ecological science fiction will also be provided.
