Queer and feminist writers group

July 21, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This is a spin-off from the queer and feminist book club, which meets every couple of months to discuss a book.  The writers’ group will be meeting in between the book group meetings.

For more information, the FB group is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/207421339874592/

We will be having our first meet up on Saturday 21 July at 10am-12noon at the Botanic Gardens.  This group is catering to people who either are writing with queer / feminist / LGBTQI+ themes, or who would like to but maybe are not sure where to start.  No pressure on anyone to share their work.

There will be writing exercises to try, a discussion of a short piece of fiction, and also discussion of short readings in queer / feminist theory that relate to writing – to think about.

The link to the theory reading we’ll be discussing at the first meet-up is here: https://www.csusm.edu/sjs/documents/silenceintoaction.pdf.

The fiction work is ‘After the Big One’ by Cooper Lee Bombadier from ‘Meanwhile, Elsewhere: Science Fiction and Fantasy from Transgender Writers’.
