A FREE 10-week creative writing class for gay men who lived through the first decade of the pandemic, and those interested in writing about the era.

We’ll read master works by gay writers and writers with HIV/AIDS, examine images & contemporary reports from the era to inspire our own creative writing, and practice elements of writing craft in essay, poetry, and fiction.

Classes meet for two hours each Monday from April 1 to June 10, 2019, excluding Memorial Day. Classes are at Quatrefoil Library, 1220 East Lake Street, Minneapolis.

Class is free, but is limited to 12 students. Registration: malloywriter.com/contact.htm
