Trans Writes workshops start Feb 27th, Manchester
I'm running a series of workshops for trans and non-binary writers of all experience levels, starting on Feb 27th and running each week for six weeks, in wheelchair accessible venues in central Manchester (LGBT Foundation and Commonword). We will be drawing inspiration from the 40 year old Commonword archive and using that to leap into new writing.
In an environment where our community is so often written about and spoken over by those who do not cherish us, this will be a dedicated trans and enby space where we can create on our own terms. I AM EXCITED!!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on venue and to sign up. Dates are Thursdays 6.30-9.30pm from Feb 27th to April 2nd
I spoke with Chris Neilan for the excellent Two Minute Stories podcast and it got quite unexpectedly close to... not the bone but the core, the gut, the gristle. The heart. We talk short fiction and time distortion, aid agencies and war and the ways in which work writes itself on our bodies, the way stories can reach the unspeakable.
Have a listen to some Seán Hewitt magic, and then work your way back through the season.
