Creative writing with Alex Gastel

Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by the successes of right-wing populist parties, wars, trans* and queer-hostile narratives, all combined with intersectional discrimination and daily microaggressions? Creative writing helps us to process this and celebrate our queerness. In this workshop, we make art out of anger and helplessness through writing – we write loud, proud and queer!

You don’t need any previous writing experience and can write in any language you feel like. Intersectionally queer and multi-marginalized people (for example BIPoCs, disabled, neurodivergent, fat, Muslim, Jewish, polyamorous, older people …) are very welcome. We create a safer space together.

Alex M. Gastel (they/them) sometimes puts anger on paper and sometimes love. She is a writing and diversity trainer with a background in linguistics and further training in therapeutic writing. Alex publishes short stories and poetry in literary magazines and anthologies.
