So you want to write a novel, but where do you begin? Have this question answered, and many more, with the award-winning writer Sarah Schulman (CUNY Staten Island), who will run a one-off workshop on novel writing.

Sarah is an American novelist, playwright, nonfiction writer, screenwriter, gay activist, and AIDS historian. From her 1990s novels Rat Bohemia and People in Trouble, to more recent works of ground-breaking non-fiction like The Gentrification of The Mind and Conflict is Not Abuse, Schulman has long been a leading voice in queer literature and politics. Her new book Let The Record Show: A Political History of ACT UP New York, 1987-1993, has been described by the New York Times as a "masterpiece tome: part sociology, part oral history, part memoir, part call to arms." The book challenges familiar narratives about AIDS activism as a victory attained by individuals, and instead shows how a broad coalition with constantly changing leadership won significant victories for people with AIDS. Let The Record Show is her twentieth book.

This event is organised by the Queer Intersections Oxford Network with support from TORCH.
