Share Your Story, Become a Published Author - FREE Creative Writing Workshops
Posted on: June 1 2018, 12:29 pm

The Positive Stories Project run by HIV Scotland aims to use creative writing and expression to challenge HIV stigma. The project consists of a series of creative writing workshops hosted by professional writers for individuals living with HIV held throughout the summer 2018.

The workshops will introduce participants to a range of writing forms, including poetry, prose and narrative essay, as well as techniques, advice and a safe space to share their stories.

Our first workshop will be held at HIV Scotland on Saturday, 9 June 12:30 - 2 PM and is FREE with lunch included. The workshop will be led by Edinburgh poet and performer and University of Glasgow creative writing tutor Colin Herd (https://www.colinherd.com/).

Participants also have the option to attend mentorship sessions with a professional writer, who will provide advice on their writing on a one-on-one basis with the aim of developing a piece for publication in The Positive Stories anthology.
 
If you’re a person living with or affected by HIV, we want to hear your story. Send us your stories, poetry, or personal essays for publication in the Positive Stories anthology. We also accept original artwork and photography. The book will be published both online and in print. Submissions open until 11 July. https://www.positivestories.scot/submit
