'LGBTQ+ writing is rich open territory'
- Russell T Davies
A world where LGBTQ+ writing in all its forms is more visible, where LGBTQ+ writers feel less isolated and more able to be themselves.
Where the LGBTQ+ voice matters. Where publishers and others in the writing industry are more visible in their support of LGBTQ+ writing which is often underrepresented.
Where there are safe and supportive spaces for LGBTQ+ writers online and in person.
Where LGBTQ+ writers are more empowered to define their measures of success, develop the quality of their writing, engage with the business side of writing and reach their desired audiences.
Being a queer writer is different, queer writing is different.
Proactively engaging with diversity, seeking to work with LGBTQ+ writers from all backgrounds irrespective of sex, gender, age, race, disability, religion or belief, or class/socio-economic background.
