Writing Center

Trans*/Queer Writing Group

The Trans*/Queer writing group will be on hiatus for the spring semester.

The Writing Center is offering a facilitated writing group for students who want to explore issues of gender and/or sexuality in their creative writing. All genres/forms welcome. Depending on the needs of the group, we may do writing exercises together, workshop members’ manuscripts, and/or read short examples of innovative writing which addresses themes of gender and/or sexuality. No previous creative writing experience necessary. Led by Andrea Lawlor, Writing Associate and co-sponsored by the Queer Resource Center.

This bi-weekly group will meet at the Writing Center from 4:00-5:30 pm on the following Sundays:  September 29, October 13 (optional), October 27, November 10, November 24, and December 8. Participants are asked to commit to attending most of the meetings in the series.

Limited to 12 students. Registration is open to Five College students, with priority given to Amherst College students.
