Hear Me Now Workshop @ Boojum & Snark, Sandown, Isle of Wight

July 13 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

The next Hear Me Now & @outonanislandiw writing workshop will be led by Island creatives Tracy Mikich and Teresa Grimaldi who will run a hands-on print workshop at Boojum & Snark in Sandown. Participants will design and print a one-off Hear Me Now broadsheet featuring short-form work they’ve written for the project. The unique publication will be made available to the public during Pride, 19-21 July 2024.

Hear Me Now is a 6-month creative writing project for LGBTQ+ people and allies; Isle of Wight writers of all abilities are welcome and encouraged to take part in this series of free writing workshops, inspiring walks and inclusive talks organised to grow a supportive local writing community.

Funded by the Arts Council England, Hear Me Now is hosted Brevity, The Isle of Wight’s Literary Handbill, in collaboration with StoneCrabs Theatre.

The project aims to inspire Island writers, urging them to find and celebrate their unique writers’ voices within the safe, welcoming spaces of the workshops, walks and talks. Learning from a variety of diverse writers and creatives, Hear Me Now seeks to introduce participants to short-form fiction, while inspiring them with compelling, inclusive and bold points of view. Along with one-to-one mentoring, participants will also have a chance to connect as a writing community. Short work created by participants will be considered for publication in the print edition of Brevity or on the Brevity website.

The project will wrap up with StoneCrabs Theatre co-producing a public performance of selected short stories, as well as audio recordings that will feature on Brevity’s website.
