London Queer Writers is a network for LGBTQ+ poets, prose, fiction writers, playwrights and anyone who enjoys scribbling or even just listening to words being read or performed. At the moment we run 2 monthly events:
1. An exciting open mic in Haggerston, with 8 open mic slots for LGBTQ+ poets and allies. Also included are 3 curated queer features, and a Q&A with our headline spoken word feature. This is a wonderful platonic space to meet other queer people who are interested in spoken word / the arts / emotional intelligence.
2. A free 3 hours writing workshop, run by excellent queer facilitators. New and seasoned writers are welcome, and will have the opportunity to develop/create work in the session and share in discussion (optional).
