Generative Writing Lab at The Bookish Type - June 2024

  • £5.00
    Unit price per 

Join Jess Wright on the last Tuesday of every month for a few hours of focused writing time. Each session will use a couple of queer texts as jumping off points for a series of writing exercises, with opportunities (but no requirement!) to polish and share short pieces. Aimed at both poets and prose writers who want to deepen their craft in dialogue with the queer literary tradition and in connection with others.

Jess Wright (she/they) writes poetry and prose in omnivorous and occasionally experimental fashion. Their work has appeared most recently in Queerlings, Write or Die, streetcake magazine, and Foglifter Journal. Jess has facilitated writing groups and creative workshops for over ten years in community spaces, universities, and prisons.

Date: Tuesday 25th June 2024
Time: 6:30-8:30pm
Venue: The Bookish Type, 77a Great George Street, LS1 3BR
