Outcome steps out

Tom Dingley’s epic Outcome exhibition of LGBT portraits is going on the road. Starting TOMORROW, at the Capitol in Horsham, Surrey, and we are in the final stages of organising another exhibition in Lancaster at the university library.

You can help support us in getting the exhibition seen as widely as possible by contributing to our crowd fund – and if you can’t contribute, please share!

Short Stories written just for you

As part of our Solstice Shorts fundraising for Longest Night, author David Mathews is offering to write two stories specifically for the lucky people who offer us the requisite funds, and would make a perfect present! Written to order of course, so there will probably not be time for it to be a christmas (or solstice!) present, but if you have someone with a birthday coming up…

David says:

I’d be happy to write a hand-made story (subject to be negotiated) for someone who would like to give it as a present or similar. Up to 1000 words for,  a pledge of £100.
I would be willing to do you two. (Ts & Cs: I’d need two weeks notice, minimum. Customers print for themselves.)

I was thinking of writing to a topic or theme that the recipient reader is interested in. It could have their name in it, of course – the night Fred Bloggs jammed with Bob Marley or discovered the world’s most valuable stamp. As long as it’s a bit of fun/moving/affirming for the recipient and lets them know, more or less, that someone loves them.
It would need a chat on the phone, maybe a bit of research, a first draft and then bingo!
If someone shows interest and says could David …? You can get them to check with me.
