Patchwork: A QUILTBAG Writing Group
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. New Patchwork groups start on the first Sunday of alternating months, and the group meets from 10 am-12 pm at the Calgary Sexual Health Centre.
