A Gay Men’s Creative Writing Weekend at Unstone Grange, Chesterfield S18 4AL
with Tony Challis and Joseph Nicholas
7th- 9th February 2020 Cost: £130
A writing weekend aimed at gay, bi and trans men.
People who are LGBT are to be found everywhere and at every time in history, even if with some of them we feel we have almost nothing in common.
This will be our 9th weekend, and as ever, is for those guys who want to have a go at writing, and perhaps try their hand at something different. And once again you don’t need to have already won the Booker Prize or had articles published in The Lady. You simply come along because you want to have a go and see what ideas you can contribute.
There will also be an opportunity to explore some of the Peak District or stay in front of a roaring log fire. The choice is yours.
Ideas for writing come from a thousand different places, and the sessions on offer during the weekend will be designed to encourage you above everything else to have a go. Nobody is going to offer anything but support. Your own individual contributions are going to be what really matters.
You get to decide how much you want to contribute. And it will be entirely up to you, if you wish to share anything you write with the rest of us. I have always got a buzz out of writing. All my life I have loved writing stories or sketches for cabaret, and even having a go at poems, but they were always much more difficult.
Over the weekend we will also take a look at different styles of writing in order to bring inspiration to all of us. It might be an idea to bring along a piece of writing that has inspired you in some way. Share it with us in front of the log fire. It could be a useful contribution, but it is your own ideas that are going to be the most important thing you can bring along. So, go for it! Come and join us. No invitations have been sent to Donald or to Boris.
Cost for weekend: £130
