11 May @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia, Biphobia (IDAHOBT) – Surrey Event – LGBTQ+ Writing To The Beat Of Your Life!
In the run up to #idahot day (International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia) Gary Thomas will teach a writing workshop at Surrey History Centre to coincide with his play ‘Hidden’.
After viewing a range of archive sources relating the LGBTQ+ experiences of Surrey people over the centuries, come & find out how to write about your own life in a compelling way. Learn how to present it and even get the chance to submit your writing to the Mass Observation day archive.
In this workshop you will:
- See archives of LGBTQ+ people in Surrey
- Discover more about Gary’s work including his successful Arts Council projects
- Explore ideas for writing about your own life and how to write a brief outline / synopsis
- Learn practical exercises on creating a compelling opening chapter of your own memoir
- You will also be able to submit your writing to the Mass Observation day archive the day after the workshop.
It’ll be a fun, informal way of learning about writing your own life in a way that will make others want to carry on reading!
The workshop will take place on 11th May from 1.30 – 3.30pm and is funded by Arts Council England.
