Writing About Our Climate Reality: Meaningful Climate Storytelling
Join Grist, Climate Nexus, and three storytellers for a discussion on writing about the climate crisis. We will delve into topics and questions such as: What role does fiction play in climate storytelling? How can writers include voices of color in books and short stories on climate change? To what extent can storytellers re-write or reframe climate narratives within our society? And why do storytellers choose a particular narrative approach?

The panelists:
Devi Lockwood is the author of 1,001 Voices on Climate Change and has written about science, climate change, and technology for The New York Times, The Guardian, Slate, The Washington Post, and others. She spent five years traveling in twenty countries on six continents to document stories on water and climate change.

Tory Stephens is the Climate Fiction Creative Manager and Network Weaver at Grist. Taking inspiration from the genres of Afrofuturism and Solarpunk, Stephens and his team created Imagine 2200: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors. This collection of short stories are rooted in environmental justice and climate solutions while amplifying voices that have been, and continue to be, affected by systems of oppression. He lives in a small railroad town in Massachusetts.

Jamie Margolin is the author of Youth to Power: Your Voice and How to Use It and the co-founder of Zero Hour. In her book, Margolin presents a guide to effective, intersectional climate justice activism within the climate youth movement and beyond. She is studying film and television at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

This event will be moderated by Fatimah Alyas from Climate Nexus. There will be a Q&A at the end of the panel discussion.
