The Coming Out Monologues Writing Workshops In this first-ever production at Western, a group of Western students, alumni, faculty, and staff will come together to present various aspects of the coming out process. We wish to include stories from numerous and unique backgrounds and perspectives as well as periods of time maybe you came out yesterday or 30 years ago, how'd it go, what did that mean to you, how did others respond any and all of that. We will also consider stories about coming out as a straight ally, or from the perspective of parents and friends of people in the LGBTQ community. These are only some suggestions, and we are in no way limiting any submission or theme. Humorous, poignant, serious, embarrassing, creative, and hopeful: we want it all! To help prepare for the April 13th submission deadline, we have scheduled Writing Workshops here at Western to help you craft your story. WRITING WORKSHOPS: The Coming Out Monologues Writing Workshops with Dr. Henry Hughes will take place: Monday, March 9th, 5-6:30pm in HL108 Monday, April 6th, 5-6:30pm in HL 205 ~ You do not need to attend a Writing Workshop but it may help you craft and edit your story. The deadline for monologue submissions is Monday, April 13th at 4pm.
