Good Bad Books?

Headshot of K Patrick

Join author K Patrick for a writing workshop on the genre of romance.

The only space hornier than a library is a library located in the Barbican. Working from texts such as Lauren Berlant’s Desire/Love, Violette Leduc’s La Bâtarde and Robert Gluck’s Margery Kempe, participants will think through the relationship between the queer body and text: who is really holding onto who?

Workshop Accessibility

This 2-hour writing workshop has space for 25 participants and will include practical exercises and discussion. No prior writing experience required. Please contact [email protected] with questions about access.
