Queer Futures Writing Room – April
April 24 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm CEST
Queer Futures Writing Room is a monthly online writing session, self-organised by a group of writers interested in creating community around feminist science fiction writing. Together we navigate and excavate queer futurist narratives exploring near and far speculative realities of technology, science, bodies, ecology and community.
Each session is activated with a short writing exercise, guided by someone different each month. It is a moment to share in each other’s writing practices and experiment with new ways of generating narratives. The rest of the session is open time to work on our own writing in each other’s virtual company, with the option to break off into brainstorming groups. We close each session with feedback and optional sharing.
The sessions are autonomously run so any new ideas for exercises or structures are warmly welcomed.
We hope the sessions will be a chance to intentionally set aside time for our writing in an experimental and exploratory space intended to nurture and energise each other’s practises. All levels of writing experience are welcome!
We’ll meet in the online platform of Gather, a virtual meeting environment, where you (and your avatar) can move freely through personal and shared, digital spaces. (New to Gather? Here is short tutorial video LINK)
The sessions will be held on the last Sunday of each month and will run for ∼2 hours each.
Join us at the next Queer Futures Writing Room session on April 24th, 16:00 CET!
Please get in touch about any accessibility needs and we will work around those. Closed captioning can be organised within the chat bar for each session.
