Writer’s Room, 8pm-9pm ET / 5-6 PT
A free virtual writing workshop for all backgrounds and experiences (ages 12-19). Starting 9/6/22, every other Tuesday, from September to December.

 

Writer’s Room is an open invitation bi-monthly workshop that focuses on developing writing skills for creatives of all backgrounds. We’ll gather online to study queer writers, respond to prompts inspired by their writing, and honor our inner artists by creating a pathway from our insides to the outside world. Every other week, a queer guest-facilitator will be welcomed into the space to share their personal writing practice. This workshop is great for those who are just discovering their voice, and for those who want to continue expanding and developing their artistic point of view. We invite anyone to come connect with the community, share, reflect, and respond. Though consistency is highly encouraged, the workshops are non-consecutive and participants may join at any time during the season. Each session is facilitated by two LGBTQIA+ artists, holding space to support your writing practice.

Participants who attend 5 sessions receive a certificate of completion, of creative autobiographical writing from the Future Perfect Project.

These workshops are aimed towards young artists looking to cultivate and deepen their artistic practice in an intentional way.
