LGBTQ+ writing group

If you are a western Sydney writer who identifies as being part of the LGBTQ+ community then come join us. We’ll be talking about representation of LGBTQ+ characters, writing about LGBTQ+ characters and sharing writing of our own (if you feel up to it!). Overall, it is a place to be a creative in a space where you know everyone around you gets what being queer means, no need for explanations!

Interested in joining WestWords’ Parramatta LGBTQ+ writers’ group? Send your EOIs to hajer@westwords.com.au now!

WestWords LGBTQ+ writing group meets every second Wednesday, 6:30pm at WestWords Centre for Writing, 91B Grose St, North Parramatta.
