River Ellen MacAskill, who has contributed a fantastic piece as part of our Counterflows on Paper Zine this year, presents a workshop.

This workshop will use text and multimedia-based group discussion to imagine futures beyond carceral institutions in the tradition of radical science fiction, followed by short and longer-form writing exercises, with the optional opportunity to share work with the group.

River Ellen MacAskill is a writer from the north of Scotland based in Glasgow, and a member of Glasgow Prisoner Solidarity. They publish perzines, poetry and speculative fiction. Find details of their work at
