About the Event
Kind of a drop-in, you don't have to be there the whole time and everyone is welcome! This year, our Cafe Casuals will be hosted by different members of the team each time on a voluntary basis.
This month - Join Jonathan Pizarro, one of our Associates, who recently designed and delivered our Out on thew Borders course. All writerly topics of conversation are welcome; he's particulalrly interested in chatting about your writing schedules during Covid.
Jonathan is a Queer Gibraltarian writer currently living in London. He graduated from Brunel University with a 1st in English & Creative Writing, where he was also the recipient of the Arthur Scott Prize for Creative Writing. His dissertation, a collection of short stories set in Gibraltar examining the Gothic from the perspective of the Other, won the Gompertz Prize for Literature. Under the mentorship of writers such as Bernardine Evaristo and Jonathan Kemp, he has been encouraged to explore the lived experience of being Queer and Gibraltarian in his work, and he is currently working on his first novel. His short fiction has been published in Untitled: Voices, Fruit Journal, and Emerge Literary Journal, with non-fiction in Attitude and Vada. He is currently working on a series of weekly pieces exploring his Queerness and ethnicity in the context of his life in the UK, entitled ‘Exiliado’, the first of which was showcased as a featured article on Medium. He has been a member of Out On The Page since its first writing retreat in London. He tweets about writing, but mostly about not writing, @JSPZRO.
