Queer Writing Workshops
Workshops specially designed for queer/LGBT+ young people of all ethnic and social backgrounds. It focuses on prose and verse poetry and most of the session uses freewriting. It is a non-judgemental, safe space with no right nor wrong answers and open to folx with and without creative writing experience.
Two of these workshops have been given and customised for different social groups at the LGBT Centre in Leicester: T Party, the group of trans kids between 13 and 18 years old; and Misfits, group of queer/LGBT+ young adults between 18 and 30 years old. Exercises were adapted according to age range and demographics, with examples from writers belonging to each group.
