huunuu literary festival

huunuu have launched their first literary festival about death, dying, bereavement and legacy.

With a stellar line-up of authors, writers and speakers already confirmed, it is set to be a one-of-a -kind event. Taking place from the 9th -22nd February, the virtual event includes workshops, author’s in conversation, a flash fiction competition, recommended book lists, a book of the day and the launch of their Real-Life Stories project.

“We all have messy big emotions that can be hard to navigate. By sharing, we can begin to understand that we are not alone,” said Cherry Williams, from huunuu, who will host a beginner’s workshop about how to write your own story.

“We wanted to pull this together into a different sort of literary festival, which we hope helps people to start thinking about their mortality, think about their place in the world and support those that are experiencing loss.”

Authors currently committed to the festival include headliners:

Hope Edelman

She’s the author of eight nonfiction books, including the bestsellers Motherless Daughters and Motherless Mothers, and her newest book The After grief: Finding Your Way on the Long Path of Loss. She has been writing, speaking, and leading workshops and retreats in the bereavement field for more than 25 years. Her work has been translated into 14 languages and published in 11 countries. In addition to writing and speaking, she is a certified life coach specializing in grief and loss and also leads nonfiction writing workshops to help writers revisit and revise their stories of loss. Hope lives and works in Los Angeles. Read more about her coaching and writing at www.hopedelman.com and about her programs for motherless women at www.motherlessdaughters.com.

Elaine Kasket

The collection of real-life experiences of death, dying and bereavement will be published (either in print or online) after the event, to be shared with a wider audience. huunuu hopes that by curating these stories they can bring support to those reading them.

The huunuu team are actively seeking contributions to this collection, all of the information needed to submit your story is available on huunuu.info/real-life-stories. Well-known authors involved in the festival have also been asked to contribute. Watch this space!

huunuu’s aim is to help people to talk about and plan for their death. They have created a number of tools, such as a guided journal, playing cards, a free website planning tool and group work mat’s, all available at huunuu.com. The huunuu team feel that writing and reading about this important subject matter can help us to understand our part in events that can so very easily seem out of our control or difficult to navigate.

If you’d like to attend any of the festival events, submit a real-life story for our collection or take part in the flash fiction competition, you can learn more about how to do that from their website (huunuu.info/virtual)
