Welcome to the LGBT+ writer’s group, a place for writers of the LGBT+ community and allies who write LGBT+ stories!
First off, feel free to introduce yourself, and just tell me if you’d like to be added to the tag list so you don’t miss out on the next thread!
Genres you write and current WIPs
A brief introduction of you as an author that I can add as a description on the tag list should you choose to be on it.
Secondly, joining a group can seem awkward at first before you get to know the rest of the members, so here are a couple of conversation starters (suggestions of course, feel free to just jump in with other topics) to break the ice!
- Have you written LGBT+ characters before?
- If yes, what part have they played in your stories?
- If no, what’s been keeping you?
A good way to get started on making people familiar with your stories is comp titles!
Are there any existing works (books, shows, movies etc.) you can compare your stories to/have similar elements?
What makes them similar?
If you haven’t thought of comp titles yet we’d be happy to help out if you’d like!
Thirdly, many come here to ask questions about writing characters from the LGBT+ community, and this is where we’ll bring up the most commonly asked questions and add relevant links!
