26 Inclusive writing workshop: focus on gender and trans identity

22 September @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£7
A practical workshop to help you write more inclusively — with trans people and gender in mind

About this event

The third in a series of 26 workshops focused on aspects of diversity and inclusion, this session will help you:

• explore assumptions about gender and trans people

• understand the subtleties of pronouns

• recognise and resolve sensitive writing issues

• reflect on your gender identity

• sit with discomfort, and discover creative possibilities

• expand your awareness and enhance your writing skills

This workshop is for anyone who’d like to learn more about writing well with trans people in mind. It’s designed for non-transgender writers, but all are welcome.

The session will be delivered by Loa Beckenstein, a writer, witch, and chaplain-in-training in Queens, New York in the US. Loa has been sensitivity-reading, consulting, and training about trans issues for many years.

The workshop itself will run from 6.30 to 8pm, with an optional informal discussion until 8.30pm.
