Are you interested in South Asian horror stories, Bengali poetry, or Desi fantasy/fiction? Are you tired of the lack of people of colour in literature? It’s time for Brown Girls to create their own narratives and characters. Brown Girls Write is a writing group for all women of colour who are interested in nurturing their creative writing skills or want to give it a go.

Join us as we try different types of writing and develop our own stories. It’s free to take part and no writing experience is necessary – just come along, have a go and meet other Brown Girl writers!

Brown Girls Write meets on Wednesdays at 6:00–7:30 pm at the Newcastle Deaf Centre, 2 Summerhill Grove, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 6EE. Suitable for people aged 16+.

Current dates: 17 April, 24 April, 1 May, 8 May, 15 May, 22 May, 5 June, 12 June, 19 June, 26 June, 3 July, 10 July, 17 July.
