Summer Virtual Workshop Series: Free for BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ Writers

In this weekly generative workshop series, writers will explore accessing inspiration through a number of methods, including readings, discussion, tarot, and guided visualization. Writers should be prepared to engage between sessions through readings and writing assignments. While this workshop will be primarily generative rather than feedback-based, writers are welcome to connect outside of the workshop to form feedback groups. 

 

There is no fee for this workshop. Participants will be asked to offer feedback to the host on sessions and assignments, attend all sessions, and participate wholeheartedly. To allow space for discussion and connection, participation will be capped at 15 writers. Additional applicants will be placed on a waitlist.

 

Workshops will take place virtually on Mondays from 5:30pm EST - 7:30pm EST, beginning June 21 and ending July 12. Register here
