JQY is proud to present the new JQY Writer's Group program!
The purpose of this program is to nurture, inspire and coach young writers (or members who just enjoy writing) of JQY and the Jewish LGBT community. More importantly, it will provide a safe, creative and open-minded environment for members to express themselves artistically (beyond the monthly meeting setting).
This program is open to writers of all levels. All you need is an idea!
The group will meet bi-monthly at a destination TBD. There is a maximum of 8 participants per group. Each group cycle will have approximately six meetings. At the meetings, members are encouraged to bring something they have been working on (or have been wanting to start working on). Could be:
o Film or TV script
o Editorial or blog (with intent to publish)
The group will be moderated by a program moderator and each member will be asked to share a piece of their material. After a member shares material, the other members will have time to critique and comment within a positive, nurturing safe environment. Within each cycle, there will also be guest artists (writers, directors, producers, etc.) invited who will come to speak to the group, share their experiences and take questions.
If you are interested in signing up or have any additional questions, please email
Looking forward to hearing from you.
