QTPOC Writers Workshop (Green).png

“You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can't, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world... The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter, even but a millimeter the way people look at reality, then you can change it.” -James Baldwin

The goal of this workshop group is to support QTPOC writers as they work towards completion of a writing project. Over 14 weeks, writers will work through artistic blocks, develop healthy writing habits, and expand their creative range of motion via constructive feedback, self-exploration, and intimate dialogue.

The workshop group meets once a week (in the evenings) via Zoom, with additional live masterclasses in NYC.
