‘In this space nothing else exists, we are invisible and filled with our significance. I am an expanse of existence melding into yours, unbound by language or physicality and it makes us free. ‘ Mel Reeve, Shapeshifter from Writing Our Space Writing Our Space is a collection of personal essays, short stories, poems, and scripts written by members of the LGBTQ+ community across the UK. This collection spans from heartbreak on buses to loving our childhood selves; from tiger print skirts to reflections on an HIV diagnosis. Writing Our Space features some of our community’s most talented voices such as: Andres N Ordica (winner of the Bloomsbury Short Story Slam 2016), Rosie Wilby (author of Is Monogamy Dead?), and Beth Kirkbride (founder and editor of The Independent). This insight into modern queerness speaks to our love, our grief, and our resilience, as both individuals and a community. To the LGBTQ+ community, from the LGBTQ+ community – in our own words.
