Q-munity: An LGBTQ* Reading & Writing Group – Fall 2021

Writing may be a solitary endeavor, but writers grow in their craft when they find someone for feedback and support. Contoured to the LGBTQ* community, this group will allow you to explore your authentic voice and expression while discovering the rich history and current landscape of LGBTQ* writing. Welcoming of all genres, writing levels, and identities, it will be a generative workshop with in-class free writing and directed exercises. You will have the opportunity to share your writing (or not) in a public group reading at the end of the class. New and returning
students are welcome. For all levels.

Jay McCoy has served the local writing community for years through mentoring, teaching classes, and co-hosting open mic series.

Please note: Since our Fall catalog was printed, Kentucky’s number of  COVID-19 cases has grown exponentially. Therefore the Center decided to start all early-to-mid September classes online for the safety and health of our community. Q-munity will meet online via Zoom.
