Birmingham Lgbtq+ Writers

FREE to LGBTQIA+ adults

For our first session, we'll have a chat about one of the cornerstones of writing - character.

How do writers develop characters? What makes them feel real? What characters pop up again and again in fiction, and what would you like to see represented more?

If you have any examples of really good characters in fiction or non-fiction, feel free to bring them along. Then, we'll do a 15-20 minute writing session, using a prompt to get things going.

After a short break for tea and coffee (or to keep writing, if you've struck gold) there will be time to share bits we've written.

Good to know:

  • Everything is optional, there's no obligation to share or to stay for the whole thing, and if you want you can just turn up and write.
  • This is a creative session, so the aim is to generate new ideas and get some writing done, rather than to critique work.
  • The session is free to attend and open to LGBTQIA+ adults.
  • Basic refreshments will be available for a donation, & you're welcome to bring your own snacks.
  • Accessibility: entry is through the LGBT centre. All toilets are gender-neutral and there is a ground floor disabled toilet.

No need to book – just turn up and write! Or RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2293331757382302/
