As part of New Writing South’s Celebrating our Stories project, we have been collecting the stories of older LGBTQ+ people across the South East of England. These stories will become a series of performances in a festival celebrating the lives of older LGBTQ+ people next year.
We have now reached the stage of the project where we are offering LGBTQ+ writers the opportunity to respond to the stories we have collected in a series of writing workshops taking place in Brighton and Hastings.
In these workshops, we will listen to some of the stories we have collected and through discussions, writing exercises and activities, explore how we can use them as prompts for creative writing.
Led by the playwright and Artistic Director of Celebrating our Stories – Dinos Aristodou – come along to listen to, celebrate and write about all things LGBTQ+.
The workshops are suitable for LGBTQ+ writers of all ages, whether new to writing or with many years of experience. To book your place online please press the booking button at the bottom of the page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
