The best way of getting a sense of what we do is by looking at some images from our activities. We’ll keep updating our gallery pages as we go on.
Education Gathering Group – Hpa-An, Karen State, Myanmar 2019
In January 2019, we were in Hpa-An, the capital of Myanmar’s Karen state, where we were working at the Education Gathering Group training teachers in creative writing teaching. We’re hoping some of the teachers involved will go back to their classrooms to explore creative writing with their students, whether in English, in Burmese, in Karen, or in any other language.
Short Story Writing Course — Parami Institute, Yangon 2018-2019
Between October 2018 and January 2019, we worked with a group of writers at the Parami Institute in Yangon on developing skills in short story writing. The six week course covered flash fiction, character, dialogue, narration, plot, and focussed in particular on developing skills in editing and redrafting.
Ethics and Writing Workshop – Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2018
At the 2018 Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Ubud, Bali, we ran an afternoon workshop on writing and ethics. We explored the ethical questions that participants experienced in their own practice of writing, and looked at how to deepen this process of ethical questioning before coming up with some concrete strategies for finding ways forward.

Suspended – Workshop and Performance, Leicester Cathedral 2018
We were at Leicester Cathedral in July 2018 for a workshop exploring Arabella Dorman’s installation “Suspended”, the internationally acclaimed artwork that seeks to raise global awareness about one of the defining issues of our times: the forced displacement of people. The workshop was followed by a performance featuring as guests the Iraqi writer Malka Al-Haddad, and Wind&Bones’s very own Hannah Stevens.
Write Here: Sanctuary Project – Leicester 2018
We have worked with Writing East Midlands for their Write Here: Sanctuary project, leading creative writing workshops with groups of refugee and asylum-seeker writers.
