QTIPOC Writers Group is a new writers group which is free thanks to funding from Consortium’s LGBT Intersections Funds. This event is monthly and open to queer writers of colour in Scotland. The sessions will be hosted by a different queer creative of colour each month, where the group will discuss and creatively respond to a short piece of media produced by QTIPOC.
This group is a relaxed, supportive space where queer writers of colour can celebrate the work of other QTIPOC artists while using it to inspire their own creative practice.
Please be mindful when booking. This event is for writers based in or from Scotland who are Black/from the African diaspora, Brown, Asian, or identify as People of Colour, including people of mixed heritage.
