Reading and Writing Programs

Summer Writing Programs - 2023

Each summer, we run writing intensives that include two components: a weekday writing group (virtual) and a weekend writing workshop (virtual).

Program Description:

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. It will consist of scheduled sharing and feedback sessions meant to move existing work toward publication or completion (maximum of 20 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.

Session 1 (Saturdays): July 8th – July 29th, 11-2 EST, $40
Session 2 (Saturdays): August 5th – August 26th, 11-2 EST, $40

Spring Reading Programs - 2023

Each spring, we will read together with a focus on Black and queer authors. We will also connect with The Black Feminist Book Club and CCM Speakers’ Series to sponsor talks and readings with our favorite authors.
