2017 Featured Residency Workshop:
Imagined Futures: A Transformative Writing Workshop

Drawing on Afro-futurist inspirations, this four day optional workshop invites participants to time travel through their writing lives. We will spend time exploring our past, present and future writing selves. This workshop will help participants deepen a connection to their inner writing self, discover new tools for their writing practice, allow time for new writing to emerge and includes a one hour personal coaching session. Writers at all levels welcomed!
