Joanne Askew

Joanne Askew is a Science-Fiction and Horror writer. She explores mental health issues, sexual identity, femininity and neurodiversity through speculative fiction. As an LGBTQIA+ activist, she believes that fiction will make our world a better place to come out in. She has many short story publications and has an LGBTQ+ novella coming out in 2022. She strives for more queer representation in media, particularly speculative fiction, and highlights social injustices like inner-city poverty, the justice system and mental health representation. Joanne has OCD but battles her compulsions to make sure she uses them as a superpower in an empowering way.

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.
