Donating makes a real impact on the lives of our writers.
We don't want LGBTQ+ writers to be held back due to the lack of funding.
We aim to make all our events accessible for LGBTQ+ writers who could not otherwise afford to attend. We do this by offering concessionary tickets and if needed, bursaries to further enable access. We are proud to say that we have always found a way for writers to access our paid events and courses. Your donations are crucial to making this work.
We also use donations to develop our support for LGBTQ+ writers and increase the range of workshops, courses, and opportunities we offer.
Whatever you donate will help LGBTQ+ writers.

How your donations help.
Sal lives in a remote part of the country and writes poetry.
The Out on the Page online events have helped them connect wit other writers for the first time, develop their writing and feel less isolated during these difficult times.
Lockdown or not, Sal really wants the online events to continue if funds allow.
Indomee, an independent, disabled LGBTQ+ journalist, also looking after her disabled child, wanting to build her networks.
Money was tight and she simply could not have afforded to travel to and attend a one-day retreat otherwise.
Aarav, committed to developing as a writer after graduating from university.
Although he worked freelance as a translator and proofreader there was little financial stability at present whilst he sought more permanent work.
The bursary not only helped him attend a day of writing networking and sharing information, it also demonstrated to him that there was a supportive LGBTQ+ and Allies community out there willing and able to support him
This is a fantastic opportunity to support emerging LGBTQ+ writers.
