About the Event

About the Out on the Page 'Megaphone' Video for The Writers' Conference 2021

We are looking for members to submit to us a short MP4 clip (landscape setting) of them reading their writing. It can be any genre and any length up to a strict maximum of 5 minutes. Poetry, Prose, Experimental, Fiction, Non-Fiction. It can be a work in progress. You do not have to be a published writer. We would also want you to submit a 25 word bio and any links to your writing if it exists in the public sphere.

Out on the Page will then shortlist clips to send to The Writers' Conference, who will edit the content into a 30 minute video that will run on Youtube during and after the conference.

This is a fun and fantastic opportunity for you and Out on the Page to showcase the wonderful diversity and talent of emerging LGBTQ+ writers. Because this is a generic conference your submissions should be generally family friendly. Don't worry too much about this, I would let you know if we hit any editorial boundaries.

How to ... make an MP4 video on your smart phone


this is a simple guide form our friends at Digital Culture Network at Arts Council England

Just film yourself on your webcam or mobile phone and send it along to us with your bio and writing links.

You do not need to register for this event. All you need to do is email your submission with email subject MEGAPHONE to contact@outonthepage.co.uk by midnight on Tuesday 16th March.

supporting emerging LGBTQ+ writers
Out on the Page was set up in 2018 as an experimental project to bring together LGBTQ+ writers to write, support each other and to share information and experience.
Since then, we have held one-writing retreats, workshops, groups and cafe casual meetings across England.  We have also set up an online writer directory and forum for emerging LGBTQ+ writers.
We have received Arts Council England funding for 2020 to sustain and develop our much-needed work, including online events.
