Open Book Creative Writing Sessions 2024
FREE monthly creative writing sessions for LGBTQ+ people (16+) in Edinburgh
Delivered in partnership with Open Book Reading, we’ll be reading stories and poems aloud and using them to create our own writing in a gentle, guided session with Lead Reader, Jess Orr.
No experience required! Just a willingness to have a go in a safe and affirmative setting.
You can book for each session individually, with the booking details made available each month via or via Queer Creative Writing Scotland.
Who we welcome
All LGBTQ+ people over 16 in Edinburgh are welcome to join us.
We welcome the entire diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community including non-binary, queer, intersex, asexual people and all identities under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella.
We also welcome people who aren't sure about their sexual orientation/gender identity, or who do not use labels for either.
Spaces are limited to 20 people per session so we need you to register in advance.
