June is Not Enough:
An LGBTQ+/Queer Nonfiction Writing Class
Everyone is full of PRIDE in June, but what about the other months of the year? We can't afford to wait until Pride Month to be proud of our community and rich Queer tradition and heritage! Each week we will read and discuss essays from various LGBTQ+ writers in search of themes, humor, voice, structure and other elements we can incorporate into our own work. We'll also use these pieces and our discussion as a jumping off point to generate work during class. Join us to celebrate your QUEERNESS! Let's carry that rainbow with us all year long!
