QUEER BODIES Call out for Participants

QUEER BODIES … cannot exist quietly. We are fodder for debate about bathrooms,
borders, eating disorders, and assault. We become containers for rage and sympathy, sites for
projection, politics, violence, fetish and fantasy. We are STI risks, HIV havers, statistics. We are
explosive, dangerous, and subversive. Our water is thicker than blood. We exist.
We want to to build a dedicated cohort of queer writers in the North West, suitable for folkx
interested in challenging and strengthening their practice, learning critical theory and gaining
valuable feedback in a safe environment.
Participants should be open to collaboration, compassion, and have a passion for / interest in
writing / exploring / reading / presenting and publishing poetry, individually and in group
We especially encourage applications from queer, nb, trans, poc, disabled, and older writers.
