A sense of place - setting, place & world building

Birmingham LGBT

What gives writing a sense of place? How do writers create worlds, and how does setting influence action? That's the topic for this month's meet - please bring along any favourite books or examples and we'll add them to the discussion! We usually start with introductions and a bit of a discussion, do a writing prompt in the middle, and then end with tea and some optional sharing of work. The room is generally free until 16:00 if people want to hang out and chat, or get some more writing done afterwards. Good to know: All parts are optional, and all levels of experience and genres of writing are welcome, including non-fiction, poetry and drama. The session is free and open to LGBTQ+ adults. The venue is step-free with an accessible toilet, and all toilets are all-gender. This is peer-led so there is no 'teacher' although there will usually be some notes/quotes to jump off from. We're here to learn from each other! Basic refreshments provided, feel free to bring your own snacks.
