Bent is a queer writing institute, but we're more than just a school. We're a community of poets, storytellers, teachers, and performers. Our learning model redefines the study of writing based on the radical notion that queer stories and voices must be heard. We write to have fun. We write to come out. We write to remember. Some of us make writing our career path, but more importantly, many of us use writing as a lifeline.
We can't wait to meet you.
Bent is a writing institute designed for queer writers of all levels, from beginning poets to advanced short story writers. The low-impact, supportive environment encourages all participants to take the risks necessary for their writing to grow. See current class and workshop offerings here.
