ATTN: LGBTQ WRITERS. This Pride, authours MARNIE WOODROW and JIM NASON are offering their ‘all the [violet] rage’ workshop, PROUD WORDS, at the new offices of Tightrope Books in the heart of PrideTO’s downtown core.
As described by it’s facilitators:
Pride Week elicits many feelings for people who are writing within an LGBTQ framework—this workshop will offer a safe and non-judgemental environment to explore these thoughts and feelings and put them into words. And, perhaps, transform those words into the genesis of a play, novel, essay, memoir, collection of poetry…
All I can add is this, if you’re an aspiring LGBTQ writer and/or one that just needs to hit your ‘refresh’ button, you will be hard pressed to find two more accomplished, ardent, honest, and passionate guides to tap into what you need to move your writing forward.
There are Only ten spots in total nine spots remain (as of this posting). Sign early, sign now, sign here.
