Reading and Writing Programs
Summer Writing Programs - 2022
Each summer, we run writing intensives that include two components: a weekday writing group (virtual) and a weekend writing workshop (virtual).
The writing group will consist of structured reflection and inspiration time, intention setting, and Pomodoro-style writing intervals. Group members will also elect accountability partners to work with them throughout the session. The weekend writing workshop will consist of scheduled sharing and feedback sessions meant to move existing work toward publication or completion (maximum of 12 session members).
While you do not have to be queer to participate in the spaces, you do have to be Black and you must be committed to centering and honoring the lives and experiences of all queer and trans people.

Spring Reading Programs - 2023
