This book is the result of The Word Association’s first Standing Proud writers’ course – six months of weekly writing workshops aimed at the LGBT+ community of Worcestershire and their allies.
The project was supported by Worcester City Council and The Elmley Foundation (who allowed us to extend the project in order to help combat the isolation that many suffered as a result of the Covid-19 crisis). This book features a collection of poetry and prose from a talented and dynamic collection of writers.
Featuring the work of: Oliver Bliss, Elizabeth Joy, Sophie Ridge, Colby Wren Fierek, Kathryn Brice, Steve J. Martin, Nicola Longworth-Cook, Becky Leonard-Dixon, Chris Cox, Dawn Wright, Lydia Sofia, Claire G.M Benson, Andrew Gardner and Jay Rose Ana.
The project was coordinated by The Word Association with support from Out2gether.
