LGBTQIA-young adult author M.G. Hennessey will lead students, ages 12-18, on a writing workshop exploring queerness and building community. The workshop will begin with introductions and a generative prompt for the group, allowing participants 30 minutes to respond to the prompt. The group will then listen and provide positive feedback for each reader. Possible prompts include “My coming out story,” “LGBTQ superhero,” and “When I grow up.” There will also be a book signing by Hennessey concluding the event.
