We're running the second round of Patchwork Poetics, and we're THRILLED to be working with Loft 112 - an accessible, local workshop space just a few blocks from the C-Train.
Each successive round of Patchwork, now heading into our fifth, has been fantastic - we've produced a significant amount of writing, spent time learning self-care for writers and developing sustainable writing habits. Each round is a new experience, and I am so excited to continue offering this support to Calgary's QUILTBAG community. I can't wait to do it again!
This writing group is open to any member of the QUILTBAG (Queer/Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans*, Bisexual, Asexual/Allies, Genderqueer/Gay), and focuses on writing exercises for both fiction and non-fiction writers. Ideal for exploring orientation, identity, fantasy, history and desire. Patchwork is open to writers who only write at the group, as well as creating a safe space within which to submit existing and polished work to the group for balanced feedback. No previous writing experience is required, and no writer is ever obligated or expected to share their work with the group. Writing exercises are suitable for new or experienced writers, and provide opportunities for scene and character workshopping for fiction writers, and facilitated memoir or autobiographical writing for non-fiction writers.
Patchwork runs for 6 weeks at a time and is open to new or returning members. The group meets from 11 am - 1 pm at Loft 112.
Pay-what-you-can, $75 suggested.
