Writing Proud is excited to invite you to this series of creative writing workshops for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies!
With a focus on exercises to build self-esteem and confidence in your writing, each session will celebrate unity within the community in the run up to Nottingham Pride. All are welcome, as we’ll be writing to express not impress, while exploring our heritage, history and stories.
These workshops offer a safe space for all who wish to feel included, regardless of writing experience, sexual orientation or gender identity.
DATE: WEDNESDAYS STARTING MAY 15TH AND RUNNING TO JULY 17TH
TIME: 6 - 8PM
VENUE: WATERSTONES NOTTINGHAM
Admission is £3 per session, but due to limited spaces please guarantee your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or messaging the Writing Proud page. (Do not contact Waterstones directly, as they are not managing the bookings for these workshops!)

His body of creative work weaves together a fresh contemporary style with magical realism; black comedy with a romantic twist. He deems himself a representative of the weird and the queer. He has an MA in Creative Writing, and an MSc in Creative Writing Therapy, and has performed across the UK as a songwriter, drag queen and spoken word artist.
