Live Performance

Writing Queer Autofiction: Intimate Letters: A Multimedia Reading of Queer Autofiction

26 Nov 2023 5.30-7pm

Nottingham Contemporary
Nottingham NG1 2GB


This performance is the product of a year long queer autofiction writing group of 3 migrant queers from South West Asia who like the genre of autofiction for its ability to foreground lived experience with disregard to generic binaries like fiction and autobiography, story telling and testament, and the infamous high and low culture.They consist of texts written in the letter form, weaving pop culture with deep trauma in an experimental fashion. The reading of the texts will be accompanied by a soundscape and video created by Seda Ergul.

This event is part of a series of 5 events which will explore the many different ways of expressing identity and trauma through autofiction, a form of writing that is situated between the autobiographical and the fictional, a genre that has been favoured by queer writers

The sessions are open to all and no previous experience is required.
