"inVISIBLE Ink is a free art and writing workshop series aimed at LGBTQQ2S (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, queer, questioning and 2-spirited) youth and their allies in Thunder Bay.

*Who?* Although the project has a definite focus on queer youth, all interested and respectful young people are welcome to attend. inVisible Ink is facilitated by Thunder Bay writer Susan Goldberg and visual artist Lora Northway, both of whom have a strong track record of teaching and working with youth, in the LGBTQQ2S and wider communities.

*What?* During monthly, three-hour workshops, participants will practice and hone their creative writing, visual arts and zine-making skills. Visiting artists and writers will guide each workshop. Over the course of the series, young artists and writers will work to create their final product: a polished, printed group zine. A reading will be performed at Thunder Pride Lit Night, and an exhibition of the stories will be written on gallery walls for Definitely Superior Art Gallery’s “Urban Infill” art crawl in March 2016.

Join the Facebook group! Come to the next workshop on Tuesday, October 20th, 6pm at Defsup. Drop in and check it out! Email us if you have any questions or would like to recommend someone invizink@gmail.com."
