The Grey Area Writing Group & Book Club

A monthly event for trans and queer writers and book lovers.

The Grey Area Writing Group & Book Club

The Grey Area is a monthly event for trans and queer writers and book lovers. Events will take place in person, in the Office Arté Util space at the Whitworth.

This is a new trans and queer writing group and book club in Manchester. The Grey Area is based in the Whitworth and we run from 6pm to 8.30pm.The idea is for writers and book lovers to get the chance to meet, share work and find like-minded people.

The Grey Area events are held on the first Thursday of the Month. These events are very collaborative and Grey will ask you what your expectations are of the session, encourage feedback and keep the group welcoming to newcomers who may join in later months.
