‘Really engaging, helpful and positive group. Great team leadership with patience and fantastic community.’ – Pascal Vine, alumni
They//Us is an online writer’s community created by For Books’ Sake in the winter of 2020.
Our monthly sessions provide a space for non-binary writers to come together to write and share ideas. We offer feedback on work, catch up on writing projects and socialise with others from across the UK. Our community is linked by a Discord server where members can interact outside of monthly sessions. The community is made up of writers from different disciplines including creative non-fiction, poetry, novels and experimental short fiction. They//Us is a network of sharing, encouragement and collaboration.
Our monthly sessions are split into two across the year – Spring Term and Autumn Term. Interested participants will be able to sign up for a term for a fee of £7-10 which unlocks access to our online community, They//Us alumni and 4 workshops led by Crow Rudd.
We will shortly be open for our Spring Term which will run March – June 2024. Please check back or subscribe to our newsletter when sign up begins.
