The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Make your voices heard at this LGBTQ History Month writing workshop for young people, with Sheffield Libraries' Writer in Residence Nik Perring.

The workshop will show you how to put your hopes, worries, and dreams into words, and to celebrate your own queer stories in any way you choose.

Nik will show you how to shape your brilliant ideas, and channel your own unique perspectives on the world, into exciting and arresting pieces of writing. Poets, prose writers, and those brand new to writing are all welcome.

There’ll also be an opportunity for your work to be broadcast on Sheffield Library’s YouTube channel, and to enter it into the On a Queer Theme writing competition.

There are two workshops, for different age ranges.

Book now:

1st February – ages 13–15

1st March – ages 16–18
