Thursdays, 7/2, 7/16, & 7/30, from 6:00-7:30 PM PDT 

Looking for some structure to kick your brain into writing gear? Missing community and opportunities to share work? This workout session for queer writers will offer brief introductions, followed by two 20-minute writing challenges with time to share your responses and some short stretch breaks. Stick around through the end for optional homework and a chance to vote on what you’d like to work out in a future session.

Suggested slack channel for ongoing discussion:
#writing-sprint_room and #id-lgbtqia
