About the Event
Out on the Page is a catalyst for change; to connect, develop and promote LGBTQ+ writers and writing.
Before the Day
About a week before your retreat we’ll send you our to-the-point Guide that will help you prepare for and make the most of your day with Out on the Page.
On the Day
Arrive anytime from 9.30am for a 10.00am start.
Paul and Jo from Out on the Page will facilitate the day and will include:
Scheduled self-led writing sessions.
Opportunities to chat and network with your fellow LGBTQ+ writers.
Lunch break - lunch not provided.
A facilitated Q&A with our guest writer Polis - with a focus on their experience of emerging as a writer.
A representative from Writing East Midlands will join us at lunchtime and for the afternoon and will answer any questions you may have.
Four Leaves Bookshop
We have been invited to join Four Leaves Bookshop for drinks and perhaps short readings after 5.30pm. Thiere is no obligation to attend this. We will confirm if this is going ahead, closer to the date.
After The Day
Attendees also get free access to our online LGBTQ+ Writer Network Community for 2022. This is a safe and managed space on our own Slack platform and it's easy to use.
Our Guest Writer Polis Loizou
Polis' debut novel, Disbanded Kingdom, was published in 2018 and long-listed for the Polari First Book Prize. The Way It Breaks is set in his motherland of Cyprus, as is A Good Year, a historical novella inspired by local folklore.
His stage work includes theatre, poetry and folk storytelling.
You may need to provide this on the day. Partial bursaries are available for writers who would otherwise be unable to attend. Please email email@example.com for more details.£30.00
