Queer Story Nights

Join us for Queer Story Night – a new space for LGBTQIA+ people to get together to turn your true experiences into impactful stories, memoir and creative writing every month.


Sep 19, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Centre for Stories

Welcome to our monthly storytelling evening at Centre for Stories for the LGBTQIA+ community to share and craft stories together.
Group members will have the opportunity to learn the craft of spoken word storytelling and writing, in a safe and supportive space. Learn how to turn your real experiences into gripping, impactful stories either for the stage or for the page. We will prioritise memoir and non-fiction writing but creative writers are absolutely also welcome to join this group!
You will be facilitated by published writers and storytellers Mim Kempson and Jay Anderson. We recommend you attend regularly to work on ongoing pieces that we can support you to publish or share in future projects and events.
Tea and coffee and biscuits provided.
Please note: This group is for people identifying as LGBTQIA+ only.

Jay Anderson is queer writer of colour living and working on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja and Mim Kempson is a queer Sex & Relationship Therapist. Scroll down to read more about Jay and Mim.
The workshop will be a mix of oral storytelling and writing. Bring your own laptop or pen and paper to write. You are also welcome to bring your own dinner or snacks. If you have any allergies, please contact us at
